SpiceJet and Boeing sign MoU for 40 737 MAX airplanes

Its all-Boeing jetliner fleet includes 17 Boeing 737-800s, four Boeing 737-900ERs and one Boeing 737-300 Freighter, which serves more than 50 domestic and regional destinations. The delivery is scheduled from 2021 onwards.

In a sign of their more modest expectations, some companies have cut back on staffing and catering at this year's Paris show and made less space available for the media.

On Monday, Boeing said GE Capital Aviation Services, the aircraft leasing and financing division of General Electric Co., will convert orders for 20 Max 9 planes to Max 10s.

The US planemaker said it had more than 240 orders and commitments from at least 10 customers for the new 737, which can carry up to 230 people in a single-class configuration.

Of the new MAX 10 jet, Boeing sales vice president Ihssane Mounir said: "It is getting a big endorsement from airlines and that is leading to more lessors endorsing it too". The carrier plans to grow its operational fleet to 100 airplanes by 2020 and looks to expand regionally with the new 737 MAX family of airplanes.

Twenty of SpiceJet's provisional order for 40 MAX 10s were conversions from an existing order for other 737 models. The Dublin based carrier is the largest 737-800 customer in the world and the largest Boeing operator in Europe.

Qatar Airways firms up an order for 20 Boeing BA.N 737 MAX jets after letter of intent a year ago for up to 60 737 MAX 8 jets.

The airline's Malaysian subsidiary, Malindo Airlines, received a Boeing 737 Max 8 single-aisle passenger jet last month, becoming the world's first airline to use the airplane for commercial services.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a family of super-efficient airplanes with new passenger-pleasing features that bring the economics of large jet transports to the middle of the market.
