Boeing announce £4.65bn order for new aircraft
Monday 09 July 2012
Planemaking company Boeing today announced a huge £4.65 billion order for new aircraft.
Revealing the deal at the Farnborough Air Show, Seattle-based Boeing said US aircraft leading company Air Lease Corporation (ALC) was ordering 75 planes.
ALC has placed a firm order for 60 of Boeing's 737 MAX 8s and for 15 737 MAX 9s with reconfirmation rights for 25 more 737 MAX planes.
The 737 is often described as the "workhorse of the skies" and the 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of what is the world's best-selling aircraft. The MAX is more fuel-efficient than planes of its kind.
Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and chief executive Ray Conner said: "The ALC leadership team has an excellent record of placing Boeing airplanes with airlines worldwide.
"They are an ideal partner to help establish the 737 MAX in the leasing market."
