Aeromexico, said on Thursday it has confirmed an order for six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, part of an order valued at around $11 billion announced in July.

The first delivery is expected next summer. Aeromexico said the purchase of four additional 787s has not yet been finalised.

Earlier this year Aeromexico placed an order for up to 100 new planes: 90 737 MAX 8s and 10 787-9s. In November, it finalised an order for 60 of the 737s, with an option for the remaining 30.

Aeromexico, which went public last year, is betting that Mexico's economy will remain robust in the coming years. Aeromexico's operations got a big boost following the 2010 demise of debt-laden rival Mexicana.
