Boeing and International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) have finalised a firm order for 33 Next-Generation 737-800s. The order, with a list-price value of more than US$2.6 billion, is part of the company’s initiative to modernize its fleet and increase the balance in its aircraft portfolio.
“This 737 order will provide ILFC’s airline customers with advanced, highly competitive airplanes that deliver the best reliability, superior operating economics and increased passenger comfort,” said Marlin Dailey, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “These airplanes deliver the continuous improvements we are making to the Next-Generation 737.”
Additionally, Boeing will deliver ILFC’s new 737-800s with the Boeing Sky Interior, which includes cove lighting and curving architecture with sculpted sidewalls and larger stowage bins.
“Our 737 airplanes are the best sellers in their class,” Dailey said. “This ILFC order is a reflection of our performance improvement initiatives and our goal to offer the best product in every segment we serve.”
