SilkAir defects to Boeing for 23 Boeing 737-800s and 31 737 MAX 8s

SilkAir (Singapore), the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to purchase up to 68 new aircraft from Boeing.

The order is the largest in SilkAir’s history and remains subject to the negotiation of a final purchase agreement.

It will comprise firm orders for 54 aircraft and purchase rights for another 14. Firm orders will comprise 23 Boeing 737-800s and 31 Boeing 737 MAX 8s. SilkAir will have the flexibility to switch to other variants within the Boeing 737 product range.

SilkAir currently operates 21 A319s and A320s, with three more A320s due for delivery by the end of 2013. The new aircraft will cater for both growth and fleet renewal.
