Avolon publishes assessment of Boeing 737 MAX

Aircraft lessor, Avolon, has published a paper assessing the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft family titled, The 737 MAX – Taking Flight. This paper analyzes the impact of the evolving changes to the MAX family’s composition on the narrowbody aircraft market.  At a broader level, the paper analyzes the strategic moves that led to the launch of the MAX family and how Boeing responded to Airbus’ launch of the A320neo family.

Steve Mason, Avolon’s Senior Vice President of Strategy and author of the paper, said:
“This assessment validates our view that, while the MAX 8 offers airlines, lessors and investors an attractive investment proposition, the investment strength of the other variants is not yet fully understood by investors. While the market has reacted positively to the launch of the MAX 10, questions remain whether Boeing’s new-technology narrowbody will help reclaim market share from Airbus.”

At the Paris Air Show in June 2017, Avolon signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for 75 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft with an option for a further 50 Boeing 737 MAX 8, an order which represents single largest order that Avolon has placed with Boeing to date.
