DUBAI: Flydubai commits to 175 737 Max aircraft


Boeing has announced today a $27bn (£20.5bn) deal with low-priced carrier FlyDubai for up to 225 airplanes, which it says marks the biggest single-aisle jet purchase by an airline in the Middle East. It placed its first order for 50 Next-Generation 737-800s in 2008.

The aircraft will start being delivered from 2020, Boeing Commercial Airplanes sales chief Ihssane Mounir said at a news conference. "In under a decade, flydubai has extended its network to 97 destinations in 44 countries and we look forward to the arrival of the new aircraft from 2019 in support of our future ambitions".
