Miami based airline investment company 777 Partners has placed an order for up 66 Boeing 737 Max aircraft in a deal announced at the Farnborough Airshow today.
The deal includes a firm order for 30 737-8-200 aircraft and a commitment for a further 36.
“This new order marks another milestone in the robust growth of our aviation businesses and concurrently, our partnership with Boeing,” said Josh Wander, managing partner of 777 Partners. “We are excited about the possibilities the MAX aircraft provide our growing group of carriers to facilitate and democratize low-cost travel around the globe while respecting our commitment to sustainable flying.”
The 737-8-200 is a high capacity variant of the 737 Max 8 and seats over 200 people making it ideal for high density routes where carbon emissions are a factor.
“777 Partners is leveraging the cost efficiencies of the 737-8 and 737-8-200 for its diverse network of airlines, while also providing an excellent passenger experience and meeting sustainability goals,” said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “777 Partners has had tremendous success establishing new carriers worldwide with the 737-8, and the 737-8-200 will allow for continued growth as an even more efficient addition to its portfolio.”
