Aviation Capital Group has finalized an order for 13 Boeing 737 MAX jets, increasing the lessor's order book to 47 737 MAXs. The new, incremental order includes seven 737-8 and six 737-10 jets as ACG grows its single-aisle options to meet robust customer demand for the fuel-efficient 737 MAX airplane family. The 737 MAX family offers carriers enhanced efficiency and route flexibility for short- and medium-haul air travel, making it a valuable asset for airplane lessors such as ACG.  Lessors have ordered more than 1,300 737 MAX jets.

Steven Udvar-Hazy, senior vice president and chief of Aircraft Operations at ACG, commented: "We are pleased to expand ACG's commitment to the 737 MAX program. This additional order will allow ACG to offer highly fuel efficient and versatile aircraft to our airline customers worldwide." 

Christy Reese, Boeing vice president of Global Leasing Commercial Sales & Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said: "ACG's growing and diverse 737 MAX portfolio allows its customers to operate a more sustainable, efficient fleet. We look forward to helping ACG deliver the most fuel-efficient airplanes in the industry to its airline partners."

The 737-8 can carry up to 210 passengers based on configuration with a range of 3,500 nautical miles, while the 737-10, the largest 737 MAX model, seats up to 230 passengers with a range of 3,100 nautical miles. Both variants reduce fuel use and carbon emissions by 20% compared to the airplanes they replace.

On average, each 737 MAX saves up to eight million pounds of CO2 emissions annually compared to the airplanes it replaces. The 737 MAX is a quieter airplane, with a 50% smaller noise footprint than the airplanes it replaces.
