SpiceJet signs MOU for 20 Boeing 737 MAX 10s and converts 20 737 MAX 8s to 737 MAX 10s

SpiceJet and Boeing on June 19, 2017 signed a memorandum of understanding for 40 737 MAX airplanes. The agreement, valued at $4.7 billion at current list prices, is split evenly between 20 new orders for the 737 MAX 10 and conversions of 20 of the low-cost carrier’s 737 MAX 8 airplanes from its existing order to 737 MAX 10s.

 

SpiceJet operates a fleet of 35 Next-Generation 737s and 20 Bombardier Q400s. The carrier plans to grow its operational fleet to 200 airplanes by the end of the decade and looks to expand regionally with the new 737 MAX family of airplanes. SpiceJet will take delivery of its first 737 MAX in 2018.
