Jet Airways had agreed to buy 75 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, informed chief executive officer Vinay Dube on October  11, 2017, at a briefing in the southern Indian city of Chennai.

An order for 75 737 MAX 10 jets would be worth as much as $9.3 billion based on list prices, although airlines typically get discounts for large orders, the Reuters informs. The deliveries of the single aisle jets are expected to start in 2018 and a decision on adding an equal number of narrow-body aircraft “will be made over the coming few months”.

Jet Airway is a major Indian international airline based in Mumbai. It operates over 300 flights daily to 68 destinations worldwide. It is the second largest airline in India after IndiGo with an 18.2% passenger market share.
