All Nippon Airways is going back to Boeing for more 787 Dreamliners, committing to up to 20 more of the jet at a time when the planemaker is eager for orders.

The Japanese carrier has agreed to acquire one 787-9 and 11 787-10s, and placed options for a further five -9s, Boeing said Tuesday. ANA will also take three new 787-9s from Atlantis Aviation Corporation, a relatively unknown company believed to be among the planemaker’s unidentified buyers.

The deal is Boeing’s first new order of 2020, and comes less than a month after it decided to cut 787 production to just 10 aircraft a month. The planemaker cited uncertainty in its outlook for new aircraft, particularly in Asia.

ANA’s order will buoy its already large 787 fleet. The airline operated 71 Dreamliners, including 36 787-8s, 33 787-9s and two 787-10s, at the end of December, its latest fleet plan shows.

The carrier will use the new 787-10 order to replace older domestic Boeing 777s in its fleet. ANA operated 20 777-200s and 35 777-300ERs at the end of December.
