Boeing signs commitments for 40 737 MAX 8s, 53 MAX 8 aircraft

Boeing and four customers have signed commitments for a total of 93 737 MAX airplanes, including a carrier that has committed to 40 of the high-capacity version of the MAX 8 airplane. The commitments, valued at nearly $11 billion at current list prices, were announced at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow.

The agreements will be reflected on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website when they have been finalized. The four unidentified customers hail from the airline and airplane leasing industries.

“Today’s announcement is yet more proof of the strong demand that we continue to see around the world for the 737 MAX airplane family,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing for The Boeing Company. “The best-in-class capabilities of the 737 MAX – its superior efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort – are driving the long-term success of this popular program.”
