Japan’s Skymark Airlines announces deal with Boeing for up to 12 737 MAX planes
Skymark Airlines plans to add up to 12 737 MAX aircraft in a deal with Boeing to support its fleet modernization.
A statement issued by Boeing reveals that the Tokyo-based carrier intends to add four airplanes, including the 737-8 and 737-10 variants, with options for two additional jets.
"As Skymark Airlines looks to sustainably grow its fleet, the 737 MAX family offers market-leading efficiency and environmental performance," Ihssane Mounir, Boeing's senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing, said.
"With commonality and enhanced capabilities, the 737-8 and 737-10 will enable Skymark Airlines to optimize its fleet across all operations," Mounir added.
In addition to its interest in Boeing’s MAX aircraft, Skymark Airlines will also separately add six lessor-owned 737-8s to its fleet, the statement added.
Skymark Airlines, which is Japan's third largest carrier by revenue, currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of 29 Next-Generation 737-800s out of its hub in Tokyo's Haneda Airport.
