Turkish Airlines, Boeing Finalize Order for 15 737 Max 8s
Turkish Airlines announced an order for 15 additional Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft. The order is valued at $1.6 billion at list price.
Monday’s order for 15 Max 8s follows the airline’s purchase of 50 737 Max planes last May, and brings the carrier’s total number of unfilled orders to more than 100 Boeing aircraft, including 65 737 Max planes, over 25 Next Generation 737s, and 20 777-300ERs.
The 737 Max is a single-aisle aircraft that incorporates the latest-technology CFM International Leap-1B engines. The plane is designed to reduce operating cost per seat by 8%.
Turkish Airlines was founded in 1933, and is the national flag carrier of Turkey. The carrier currently provides service to over 200 destinations throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
