Israel's flag carrier El Al announced Thursday that it has ordered up to nine 787 aircraft from Boeing and will lease six more from private leasing firms.

The catalogue price value of the new orders from Boeing is about $2.2 billion.

Boeing will record three of the planes on its official orders list and the others will be added as El Al and Boeing finalize commitments, the two companies said.

El Al said the orders are both to replace aging aircraft and further expand its fleet.

El Al chief executive David Maimon said in a statement that the deal "is a significant step forward in the optimization of our route network, enhancing passenger service and the overall flight experience."

The company currently operates an exclusively Boeing fleet of 22 737s, seven 747s, seven 767s and six 777s.

The 787 Dreamliner is the US aircraft maker's most recent model in its family of long-haul jets.
