What a great way to start 2013! This morning, we announced an order from Aviation Capital Group that officially pushed our 737 MAX orders to date to more than 1,000 (1,029 to be exact).
ACG’s order, consisting of 50 737 MAX 8s and 10 737 MAX 9s, was finalized in December 2012.
ACG and Boeing have a long relationship and this order, booked in December, shows the continued strong demand for the MAX in the leasing industry. It also once again proves that 2012 was indeed the Year of the MAX.
We’re incredibly pleased with the market acceptance of this airplane. Our customers really like what they’re seeing and hearing so far. And there’s no doubt we’ve done a better job than our competition in building the bridge between the Next-Generation 737 and the MAX to make a smooth and successful transition.
I’ll leave you with some brand new images of the 737 MAX. Enjoy!
