Aviation Capital Group (ACG) announced a firm order for 60 737 MAX airplanes, consisting of 50 737 MAX 8s and 10 737 MAX 9s, helping the 737 program eclipse 1,000 firm orders overall for the 737 MAX.
The Next-Generation 737 is the most fuel-efficient and reliable single-aisle airplane today with an 8 percent per-seat operating cost advantage over the nearest competitor. The 737 MAX builds on these strengths with big advances in fuel-efficiency and environmental performance. Equipped with new LEAP-1B engines from CFM International and improvements such as the Advanced Technology Winglet, the MAX reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 13 percent while maintaining the 8 percent operating cost advantage over future competition.
With the ACG order, the 737 MAX has orders for 1,029 airplanes from airlines and leasing companies worldwide.
