Boeing, Ruili Airlines Announce Commitment for 20 737 MAXs

"The 737 MAX 10 will provide even more flexibility to United's route schedule and will bring to their operation the best economics of any airplane in the single-aisle segment".

However, Boeing generated a burst of activity on the opening day by launching the 737 MAX 10 to plug a gap in its portfolio at the top end of the market for single-aisle jets, following runaway sales of rival Airbus' A321neo.

Asian and Iranian airlines provided the bulk of the new orders. According to Bloomberg, deals were over double the $50 billion seen at last year's show in Farnborough, England. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER OF AIRBUS, JOHN LEAHY, SAYING: "I think that this will be a down year for Airbus and Boeing in terms of orders". More than 360 of those came for the 737 MAX 10, which was launched at the show.

Boeing unveiled a new model of its best-selling 737 aircraft on Monday, injecting life into a faltering civil aviation market as French President Emmanuel Macron flew in to open the world's biggest airshow in Paris.

The A321 is larger than any previous member of the 737 family, a gap that the MAX 10 is meant to close.

"By placing a firm order with Boeing as well as contracting additional aircraft from our strategic partner Air Lease Corporation, Blue Air will incorporate 20 ultra-modern aircraft into its fleet", Gheorghe Racaru, CEO of Blue Air, said.

The 737 Max 200 aircraft will, together with an existing order for 100 Max 200s, assist the company in its pursuit of increasing traffic to 200 million customers a year by 2024. However, executives at Airbus say that the Max 10 is a bigger threat to other models from Boeing than to the Airbus Neo.

Once again, the bulk of Wednesday's contracts involved single-aisle airplanes, and again Boeing's 737 Max 10 drew headlines, leading with a 10-aircraft MOU with Xiamen Airlines worth $1.2 billion.

"We appreciate AerCap's commitment to Boeing products throughout the Paris Air Show and endorsement of the newest member of the 737 MAX family".

"The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing's history, with more than 3,700 orders from 87 customers worldwide", said Blue Air representatives. Changes to the cabin will allow airlines to add another 80 seats to the aircraft that carry about 500 passengers on average without reducing comfort.
