MUMBAI (PTI): American aircraft-maker, Boeing, said it will deliver nine aircrafts to Indian firms, including Air India, this year.

Other airlines scheduled to receive planes from Boeing include private-carriers Jet Lite, Jet Airways and SpiceJet, Boeing India President Dinesh Keskar told reporters here on Tuesday.

At present, Boeing has a backlog of 85 aircraft from Indian companies, which will be delivered over the next 4-5 years Keskar said.

Boeing expects to deliver the first Dreamliner Boeing 787 aircraft to Air India in the second-quarter of 2011, he said.

The plane-maker has not received any fresh orders from Indian firms in the past 18-months, Keskar said, adding that it expects to get orders from next year.

"We have not received any orders in the past 18-months from Indian companies...we expect fresh orders from Indian companies from 2011," he said.
