Southwest Airlines has just placed an order with Boeing for 108 737 MAX 7 aircraft, in another blockbuster order for the American planemaker.
The airline has been an all-Boeing fleet for quite some time now, so an order like this is not surprising.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Southwest Airlines Orders 108 Boeing 737 MAX 7s…
It is unclear when the deliveries are scheduled for, but commenting on this order was Stan Deal, the President & CEO of the Commercial Airplanes wing of the manufacturer:
“With the world’s largest all-Boeing, all-737 fleet, Southwest is counting on the exceptional efficiency and reliability of the 737 MAX family”.
“The 737-7 is pivotal to Southwest’s long-term fleet modernization strategy, and we are honored to have the airline’s continued trust in us to deliver its future fleet.”
Adding to this was Bob Jordan, President & CEO of Southwest Airlines:
“We have a long history with Boeing, dating back more than 50 years to the day we commenced service with three Boeing 737 aircraft serving three cities”.
“They’re part of our history and part of our future as we continue to recognize the many efficiencies and cost savings of a single fleet.”
Overall, this is another major order for the American planemaker, and gives further confidence to the MAX 7 variant of the aircraft family.
All eyes will be on the details behind the delivery timetable as well as other elements such as list prices etc.
But for now, all eyes on how the modernisation strategy using the 737 MAX 7 will look like.
