Air Lease Corporation has signed a firm order
with Boeing for 60 737 MAX 8 and 15 737 MAX 9 airplanes, with
reconfirmation rights for 25 additional 737 MAXs.
The order, with a list-price value of $7.2
billion, represents the first 737 MAX order by a leasing company.
"The 737 MAX is an excellent addition to our
portfolio and the ideal complement to our growing fleet of
Next-Generation 737-800s," said Steven Udvar-Hazy, chairman and
CEO of Air Lease Corporation. "The 737 MAX represents a
step-change improvement that our airline clients need to compete
in the future."
The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology
CFM International LEAP-1B engines. Boeing says that airlines operating the 737 MAX will
see a 13% fuel burn improvement over today's most fuel
efficient single-aisle airplanes and an 8% operating
cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition.
To date, the 737 MAX has
orders and commitments for more than 1,000 airplanes.
