Boeing announced a finalized order with SunExpress, a Turkish airline, for 15 737 Max 8 and 25 Next Generation 737-800 aircraft.  The order is valued at over $3.8 billion at list prices, the largest order in the airline’s history, and includes options for an additional ten 737 Max 8 aircraft.

The 737 Max has CFM International Leap-1B engines and new winglets, which allow for a 14% improvement in fuel use over other single-aisle aircraft.  The aircraft also comes with the new Boeing Sky Interior, which features modern-sculpted sidewalls, new windows, LED lighting, and larger overhead bins.

The Boeing 737-800 is part of the 737 Next Generation family, which is made up of the -600, -700, -800, and -900 models of the aircraft.  It is the third generation of the 737 and has been produced since 1996.  The aircraft can be configured to seat 162 passengers in a two-class layout or up to 189 in one class.

SunExpress was founded in 1989, and is headquartered in Antalya, Turkey.  The carrier is a subsidiary of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa.
