New Boeing jet and F-35 demand lift aerospace spirits in Paris

New Boeing jet and F-35 demand lift aerospace spirits in Paris

The agreement is split evenly between 20 new orders for the 737 MAX 10 and conversions of 20 of the low-priced carrier's 737 MAX 8 aeroplanes of its current order to 737 MAX 10s, a statement said.

Boeing Inc. on Monday revealed its extended-length 737 Max 10 model with the aim to directly compete with Airbus's A321 series.

"The 737 MAX family of airplanes is the flawless combination of single-aisle aircraft for the Lion Air Group, with their new level fuel-efficiency as well as range and capacity capabilities", said Lion Air Group President Edward Sirait.

Boeing's new 190-230 seat 737 MAX 10 airplane is a response to Airbus' A321neo - the hugely popular narrow-body passenger jet.

Boeing unveiled a new member of its best-selling 737 aircraft range, injecting new life into a faltering civil aviation market as French President Emmanuel Macron flew in to open the Paris Airshow on Monday.

Low-priced carrier Viva Air Peru looked close to reaching a roughly $5 billion deal with Airbus for medium-haul jets on Sunday, as Western planemakers seek to defy expectations of slow sales at this year's Paris Airshow.

Airbus sales boss John Leahy suggested that numerous orders for his competitor's new model were from existing customers simply converting from older models.




Boeing's CEO added the company hoped to ramp up aircraft production from 42 airplanes a month in 2017 to 57 a month by 2019.

NEW DELHI/PARIS, June 19 Indian low-priced carrier SpiceJet signed a provisional deal on Monday to buy 40 of Boeing's newly launched 737 MAX 10 jets, becoming an inaugural customer of an aircraft created to blunt strong sales of rival planemaker Airbus' A321neo.

"Airlines wanted a larger, better option in the large single-aisle segment with the operating advantages of the 737 MAX family". CDB is converting six existing orders for MAX 8s to the new MAX 10s. "Max 8 and Max 9 continue to be at the heart of the market". "We tend to focus on incremental orders", he said in reference to the fact that several of the Max 10 orders or MOUs involved conversions of previous orders for Max 8s and Max 9s.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history.

The company scrambled to put together the Max 10 in response to the demand from airlines for more fuel-efficient planes carrying more passengers.

A raft of orders and memoranda of understanding at Paris yesterday yielded several billion dollars worth of business for airframers and engine makers, making the first day of the show even more lucrative than many expected.
