FARNBOROUGH — Boeing and Aviation Capital Group have today signed for 20 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, with the list prices being valued at around $2.34 billion. It also raises ACG’s direct-buy order quantity to 100 MAX aircraft.
“The 737 MAX is core to our strategic growth plans, as the airplane continues to command strong interest in the marketplace,” said Khanh T. Tran, CEO of ACG.
“This order expands our diverse portfolio, which includes three 737 MAX variants, providing us with more flexibility and some of the most advanced single-aisle jets to serve our customers,” he added.
“We are pleased to extend our partnership with ACG as they continue to expand their 737 MAX portfolio.”
“This order reflects continued market demand for the best single-aisle airplane in its class.”
“The 737 MAX will deliver exceptional performance and market-leading economics to ACG’s world-class customers for many years to come.”
ACG’s first 737 MAX aircraft were ordered back in 2012, for the MAX 8 and MAX 9 variants before adding orders for the MAX 10 earlier last year.
ACG will be using the LEAP-1B engines for their MAX8’s as well as the Boeing Sky Interior onboard.
The 737 MAX currently has 4,600 orders from 100 different customers across the globe.
Leasing companies have been storming the airshow this week, with over $15-20 billion worth of orders coming from lessors alone. It is something that we can expect to see more of as we approach the end of the airshow on Thursday.
