Boeing (Chicago, Seattle and Charleston) and Sriwijaya Air (Jakarta) today announced an order for two Next-Generation 737-900 ER (Extended Range) airplanes during a signing ceremony at the Paris Air Show.
The order, previously attributed to an unidentified customer on the Orders and Deliveries website, marks the first all-new airplane purchase for the Indonesian airline and included a letter of intent to exercise options for up to 20 additional 737 airplanes.

According to the airline, “Our aircraft are painted in blue, red and white colors which each of the color represents:
