DSC_0825United Airlines said it plans to purchase 40 new Boeing 737-700 aircraft, and will use them to replace some of its older aircraft operated by regional carriers.

The airline did not disclose how much it would spend on the planes, although at current list prices, the carrier could be looking at an approximately $3.2 billion purchase.

United said that the planes would enter its fleet in the middle of next year.

The airline’s current 737-700s have 118 seats, including 12 in first class, 40 in Economy Plus, and 66 in economy.
