Aeromexico expanding with 100 plane order
The order comprises 90 Boeing 737-8 MAX short-to-medium range, single aisle airliners, and 10 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner long-range, twin aisle airliners.
The deal has a book value of around US$11 billion.
Aeromexico is pushing forward with plans to maintain one of the youngest, most fuel efficient fleets in the world by purchasing these aircraft. These are in addition to previously orders for Embraer 190, Boeing 737-800, and Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners that were announced in 2011. The first of these Dreamliners is expected to be delivered in Summer 2013.
The next generation 737-8 MAX aircraft will be delivered from 2018.
