Travel Service, the Czech airline company that operates scheduled flights under the SmartWings brand, has finalized an order for five 737 8 MAX airplanes, valued at $550 million at current list prices.

“We are pleased to add more 737 MAXs to our original order and we look forward to receiving the first one to become the first airline to operate the 737 MAX in this region,” said Roman Vik, Chief Executive Officer, Travel Service.

“We are delighted that Travel Service continues to place its faith in our products with this new, increased order for the 737 MAX,” said Monty Oliver, Vice President, European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “This airplane will be a great addition to its fleet providing the airline with unmatched fuel efficiency and its passengers with superior comfort.”
