Boeing announced that it received an order for 82 planes from BOC Aviation, a Singapore-based leasing company.  The order is valued at $8.8 billion at list prices.

Included in the order are 50 737 Max 8s, 30 Next-Generation 737-800s, and two 777-300ERs.  The purchase is the largest in BOC’s history.

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

The Boeing 737-800 is the best-selling model in the 737 Next Generation family, which consists 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 a single class.
