SilkAir finalises 737 order

SilkAir has firmed up an order for 54 737NGs and 737 MAX 8s worth $4.9 billion at list prices. With this agreement, the 737 MAX has accumulated 969 orders to date.
SilkAir’s order for 23 737-800s and 31 737 MAX 8s is the largest order in the airline’s history and begins a fleet transition to Boeing airplanes.
“The capability of the 737s will enable us to spread our wings to even more destinations and increase capacity on existing routes,” said SilkAir Chief Executive Leslie Thng.
The Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX can fly farther than competing airplanes, enabling airlines to open new routes.
“As air travel in the Asia Pacific region continues to grow, we’re proud to support SilkAir as it plans to fly more passengers and serve more cities,” said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Passengers will soon experience not only SilkAir’s award-winning service, but the comfort of the 737 Boeing Sky Interior.”
The SilkAir order brings the net year-to-date total for 737s ordered in 2012 to 1,031 airplanes.
SilkAir is a full-service airline and the regional wing of Singapore Airlines. It currently flies to 42 destinations across 12 countries.
