Lion Air Group orders 50 Boeing 737 MAX 10s
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."
