Boeing, Aviation Capital Group Announce Order for 20 737 MAX 8s

 

Boeing and Aviation Capital Group (ACG) today announced an order for 20 737 MAX 8 airplanes at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow. The order, valued at $2.34 billion at list prices, raises ACG’s 737 MAX direct-buy order quantity to 100.

The new orders will appear on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website once all contingencies have been met.

ACG first joined the 737 MAX family in 2012, placing orders for the MAX 8 and MAX 9. The lessor added to its portfolio last year by joining the launch group for the 737 MAX 10, the largest variant with the lowest operating cost per seat.

According to the Boeing 2018 Commercial Market Outlook released this week, airlines will need 31,360 new single-aisle airplanes, such as the 737 MAX, over the next 20 years. That represents a 6-percent increase over last year’s forecast. Analysts say the demand is fueled by the success of low-cost carriers and a big requirement for single-aisle jets for growth and replacement.

The 737 MAX family is designed to offer customers exceptional performance, with lower per-seat costs and an extended range to open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays and other features to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.
