Garuda Indonesia has ordered 50 Boeing 737 MAX 8s, valued at $4.9 billion at current list prices.

The flag carrier of Indonesia will purchase 46 Boeing 737 MAX 8s and will convert existing orders for four Boeing 737-800s to 737 MAX 8s.

“The 737 MAX 8 represents a bright, efficient future for Garuda Indonesia,” said Emirsyah Satar, chief executive officer, Garuda Indonesia. “This order helps continue our commitment to offer the people of Indonesia and Southeast Asia the most comfortable, most efficient air travel in the region.”

Garuda Indonesia currently operates 77 Boeing 737s.

The 737 MAX incorporates CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets and other improvements.

Boeing says that the 737 MAX will be 14% more fuel-efficient than today's most efficient Next-Generation 737s – and 20% better than the original Next-Generation 737s when they first entered service.
