Jetlines orders five 737 MAX 7s

Jetlines has ordered five 737 MAX 7s as the new Canadian ultra-low cost carrier builds its future fleet. The order, valued at $438 million at current list prices, includes purchase rights for an additional 16 737 MAXs.

“This agreement with Boeing is a major milestone for Jetlines,” said Jim Scott, CEO of Jetlines. “We are thrilled to be partnering with Boeing and look forward to introducing the 737 MAX 7 into our fleet.”

The new airline, headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, plans to tap into passenger demand by offering low cost airfares on routes that avoid direct competition with other airlines.

“Boeing is proud to partner with Jetlines as it begins a journey to offer low airfares to passengers across Canada,” said Brad McMullen, vice president of North America Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 737 MAX 7 is perfectly suited to the airline’s needs, and we appreciate the confidence Jetlines has in the airplane.”
