Lessor Aviation Capital Group (ACG) has placed an order for 12 737 Boeing MAX aircraft, hoping to take advantage of demand from airlines during recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The order is for the 737-8 variant of the MAX, Boeing announced at the Farnborough Airshow on July 19, 2022.
The order takes ACG’s 737 MAX order book to 34 airplanes and comes hot on the heels of an order of nine 737-8s in May 2022.
“This latest incremental 737 MAX order allows ACG to offer highly fuel-efficient airplanes to our airline customers around the world,” said Mahoko Hara, ACG executive chair. “These additional 737 MAX aircraft will help position ACG’s order book for a recovery in air traffic coming out of the pandemic.”
Ihssane Mounir, Boeing senior vice president of commercial sales and marketing, commented: “Topping up with additional 737-8s positions ACG well to respond to growing airline demand. We look forward to more opportunities to expand our relationship to support ACG and their customers.”
