Leasing company commits to buy 35 737 MAX jets; orders 20 737-800s
Boeing and Aviation Capital Group have announced the leasing company's commitment for 35 737 MAX airplanes and its firm order for 20 Next-Generation 737-800s.
The Newport Beach, Calif.-based ACG is the first airplane leasing company to announce a commitment to the 737 MAX, according to a Boeing Co. press release.
"ACG is a leader in the commercial airplane leasing industry and its intelligent fleet decisions have contributed to the company's 22 consecutive years of profitability," said Ray Conner, senior vice president of Sales and Customer Support for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The ACG leadership team understands the importance of having advanced, highly competitive airplanes to meet their customers' needs in today's marketplace. This commitment will provide ACG with airplanes featuring performance improvements and the innovative Boeing Sky Interior that will keep its airplanes at the leading edge of passenger comfort, efficient operations and reduced fuel consumption."
The Next-Generation 737 family is the world's best-selling airplane, consistently delivering outstanding operational and financial performance across the widest range of missions. Today's Next-Generation 737-800, which can seat up to 189 passengers, can fly 260 nautical miles farther and consume 6 percent less fuel while carrying 12 more passengers than the competing model.
