Goshawk Aviation orders 20 737 MAXs

Goshawk Aviation has ordered 20 737 MAX airplanes at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow. The order, valued at $2.3 billion according to current list prices, marks the first time the aircraft lessor has purchased aircraft directly from Boeing.

“Placing direct order is a critical part of Goshawk’s overall growth strategy and we are pleased to have finalized our order with Boeing. The 737 MAX family is one of the best-in-class, modern and in-demand narrow-body aircraft with latest technologies which fit well with our focus,” said Brian Cheng, Chairman of Goshawk Aviation and Executive Director of NWS Holdings. “We believe the MAX’s double-digit fuel efficiency improvement, combined with longer range and market-leading reliability, will strengthen our portfolio and help us continue to deliver world-class, tailored solutions to our customers.”

The airplanes were previously listed as unidentified on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website.

“We are delighted that Goshawk, with their world-class aircraft leasing team, has selected to expand their portfolio and business model with the 737 MAX. This is a great validation for our Boeing team and the 737 MAX family,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Commercial Sales & Marketing, Boeing. “With rising demand for narrowbody jets, we are confident that the unmatched economics and capabilities of the 737 MAX will position Goshawk for success and growth.”

Goshawk selected the MAX 8 variant in a standard two-class configuration.
