Kunming Airlines signs MOU for 10 737 MAX 7s

Kunming Airlines has announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the purchase of 10 737 MAX 7s.

With this agreement, Kunming Airlines, an all-Boeing fleet customer in China, would become launch customer in China for the improved 737 MAX 7 airplane.

“We look forward to welcoming Kunming Airlines as a 737 MAX 7 launch customer in China and finalizing the deal in the near future,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “These new airplanes will support Kunming Airlines’ strategic plan to establish an extensive flight network throughout China and increase their global reach.”

Kunming Airlines, based at Changshui International Airport in the capital city of Yunnan province, began operations in 2009.  The carrier has experienced rapid and steady growth in recent years by leveraging its regional advantages. The carrier currently serves more than 40 cities across China by operating a fleet of eight 737-700s and 11 737-800s. Shenzhen Airlines is the major shareholder of Kunming Airlines.

Boeing will work closely with Kunming Airlines to finalize the agreement. The order will be posted on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website once all contingencies are cleared.
