Outside of a launch announcement, it’s not every day that we receive an order for 82 airplanes—much less from a single customer. But that’s exactly what happened today when BOC Aviation placed an order for 50 737 MAX 8s, 30 Next-Generation 737-800s and two 777-300ERs.
This is the largest order ever by the Singapore-based leasing company as it continues to grow its portfolio.
This particular order underscores two themes I’ve been talking about since the Farnborough Airshow. First, it once again shows that customers continue to gravitate toward the heart of the single-aisle market—the 160-seat space occupied by the 737 MAX 8 and 737-800. By the way, this announcement increases our total MAX orders to 2,219.
Second, we continue adding 777-300ER orders as we firm up the production bridge from today’s 777 to the new 777X.
We thank BOC Aviation for their business and continued trust in Boeing products.
