TAROM orders five 737 MAX 8s

TAROM (Romanian Air Transport), the national carrier of Romania, has signed an order for five 737 MAX 8 airplanes. The $586 million order, at current list prices, was previously listed as unidentified on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website.

“This is an exciting time for TAROM as we upgrade our fleet and build strong partnerships that will benefit all of our passengers,” said Wolff Werner-Wilhelm, TAROM Airlines CEO. “The 737 MAX will provide our customers with exceptional performance, reliability and efficiency, with an extended range that will enable us to better serve our current routes and open new markets. This new acquisition represents a true statement of change for TAROM.”

The 737 MAX 8 incorporates the latest CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets and the Boeing Sky Interior.

“We are delighted that TAROM is joining the 737 MAX family as they grow their fleet and expand their network,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company. “When combined with support from our Boeing Global Services team, the MAX 8 will enable TAROM to offer a consistent and exceptional passenger experience while maximizing revenue potential at the best cost per seat in the industry.”
