Donghai Airlines and Boeing on June 21, 2017 announced the airline’s decision to convert 10 737 MAXs on order to 737 MAX 10s at the 2017 Paris Air Show.
The Shenzhen-based carrier will join the 737 MAX 10 launch customer team as one of the first airlines in the world to introduce the newest member of the 737 MAX family.
Donghai Airlines started freighter operations in 2006 and expanded to offer passenger services in 2014. Donghai Airlines currently has a fleet of 15 Boeing 737-800s serving more than 35 cities across China. With an extended air-route network, the Shenzhen-based carrier plans to start international long-haul flights between 2021 and 2023 and grow its fleet to 100 airplanes by 2025.
