Boeing receives first 737 MAX order in eight months

Editorial

Boeing has received its first 737 MAX order since December 2019. Polish airline Enter Air has ordered two aircraft with an option for two more.

Enter Air began operations in 2010 with a single 737 aircraft. Today, the airline’s all-Boeing fleet includes 22 Next-Generation 737s and two 737 MAX airplanes. When the new purchase agreement is fully exercised, Enter Air’s 737 MAX fleet will rise to 10 aircraft.

Alongside the new order, Enter Air and Boeing have also finalized a settlement to address the commercial impacts stemming from the grounding of the 737 MAX fleet. While the details of the agreement are confidential, the compensation will be provided in a number of forms and staggered over a period of time.

For Boeing, this 737 MAX order is the first since December 2019. In recent months, many airlines have (partially) cancelled their 737 MAX orders. Among others Norwegian cancelled an order for 92 of the airliners last month. The aircraft have been on the ground since March 2019. Boeing’s CEO Dave Calhoun said earlier that he expects to be able to continue deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2020.

“Despite the current crisis, it is important to think about the future. To that end, we have agreed to order additional 737-8 aircraft. Following the rigorous checks that the 737 MAX is undergoing, I am convinced it will be the best aircraft in the world for many years to come.”
