Kunming Orders 10 More 737s

Chinese carrier Kunming Airlines has signed a deal with Boeing for 10 737s, including four next-generation 737-700s and six 737 MAX aircraft.

The order, which must receive approval from the Chinese government to go ahead, is worth $897m at current list prices.

Xuan Yuen, the carrier’s CEO, said the agreement marked a “major step” in the regional airline’s growth strategy.

Kunming, which is 80 per cent owned by Shenzhen Airlines, began operating in 2009 and operates a fleet of 10 737-700s and five 737-800s.
