Seattle-based Alaska Airlines has ordered 10 Boeing 737-900ER (Extended Range) aircraft.

With this latest order, Alaska Airlines now has a total of 74 Boeing jets on order.

"We love having Seattle as our home and buying locally built airplanes is a point of pride for us," said Alaska Airlines' president and CEO Brad Tilden. "These new planes will allow us to serve our customers even better with improved in-cabin experience, including our new leather Recaro seats with added leg room, power outlets at every seat and larger overhead bins."

With a list price of $990 million, this order represents a significant investment in the long term success of Alaska Airlines.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner, said, "It is always special for Boeing employees to see 'Proudly All-Boeing' written on the nose of an Alaska 737."

The new aircraft will not only allow network growth, but also enable further cost reductions by replacing Alaska's 737-400s with new 737-900ERs which are capable of carrying 25% more passengers while using the same amount of fuel.
