Icelandair to buy 12 Boeing 737MAXs
The order will be firmed up soon, but at list prices is worth $1.2 billion, and will see the purchase of 737 MAX 8 and 9 variants.
Currently Icelandair utilises a fleet of 23 Boeing 757 aircraft on its routes from Reykjavik to destinations in Europe and North America.
“Over the past decades, Icelandair has successfully utilized its all-Boeing 757 fleet to establish its Reykjavik-based hub as an important gateway between Europe and North America,” said Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The introduction of the 737 MAX to Icelandair’s operation will complement its existing 757 fleet and ensure the carrier’s continued expansion across both continents, offering significant fuel saving with unrivaled passenger comfort.”
