Air Canada Finalises 737 Max Order

Air Canada has finalised an order for 61 737 MAX aircraft that will eventually replace the carrier’s current A320 narrowboday fleet. The order, valued at $6.5bn at list prices, consists of 33 737 MAX 8s and 28 737 MAX 9s, as well as 18 options and 30 rights to purchase additional 737 MAXs. Calin Rovinescu, president and CEO of Air Canada, explains: “Our narrowbody fleet renewal programme with the 737 MAX is expected to yield significant cost savings and is a key element of our ongoing cost transformation programme.” Boeing says the 737 MAX reduces carbon emissions by 14 per cent and noise by 40 per cent, compared with today's aircraft.
