Indonesia’s Lion Air Group announced an order of 50 Boeing 737 MAX 10 planes. At list prices, the deal is worth about $6.24 billion. It is the largest incremental order of the MAX 10 variant.
Lion was first with the 737 MAX 8 in service and first to order the 737 MAX 9. Last month, it became the first to take delivery of a 737 MAX 9, using its extra capacity to launch more long-haul routes.
“Lion Air is very excited to be a launch customer of the latest version of the 737. This airplane delivers a new level of fuel efficiency and operating economics and fits in perfectly with our fleet of modern airplanes,” said Edward Sirait, President Director, the Lion Air Group.
He added: “We are proud to continue our tradition of innovation at Lion Air as we again lead the way with new airplane technology.”
