QANTAS ORDERS TWO MORE WIDE-BODY BOEING 767s

 QANTAS ORDERS TWO MORE WIDE-BODY BOEING 767s
 SEATTLE, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Qantas Airways of Australia has


ordered two 767-300 extended range aircraft valued at $195 million including spares and support, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group confirmed today.
 Qantas has the largest all-Boeing fleet outside the United States. In addition to 30 747s, the airline operates seven 767-200ER jetliners and 12 of the larger -300ER models. The airline's 20th 767 will be delivered in September.
 The new 767s will be equipped with General Electric CF6-80C2B6 engines and configured to carry 244 passengers in a dual-class arrangement with 22 business and 222 economy seats.
 With a direct operating cost similar to the smaller 767-200ER, the longer-fuselage 767-300 model carries 22 percent more passengers and 31 percent more cargo. The increased payload allows Qantas to make the most of limited airport slots. Qantas utilizes its 767s on a variety of regional routes to major Asian capitals, Honolulu and New Zealand.
 Ron King, Boeing vice president, international sales, said, "Qantas has demonstrated the versatility of the 767 on long thin routes throughout its system. We are pleased the airline continues to place its confidence in our widebodies."
 Capable of flying more then 7,000 statute miles (11,265 km) non- stop in a mixed class configuration, the Boeing 767 is the world's longest-range commercial twinjet.
 Boeing has announced orders in 1992 for 113 jetliners with a value of about $9.6 billion.
