United Airlines Holdings Inc. agreed to buy 100 Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliners as part of a multibillion-dollar order for as many as 300 new aircraft, revamping the carrier’s fleet with one of the largest plane deals in recent years.

The pact includes 100 firm orders for the widebody model along with options to add another 100, the companies said Tuesday in a release. The airline expects to take delivery of the Dreamliners beginning in 2024.
