Qatar Airways Finalize Order for 25 Boeing 737 MAX Airplanes

Qatar orders Boeing 737 MAX Airplanes

Boeing and Qatar Airways finalized an order for 25 737 MAX airplanes, providing the flag carrier's short- and medium-haul fleet with improved economics, fuel efficiency and sustainable operations.

Company leaders announced the order for the 737-10, Boeing's largest and most efficient single-aisle jet, in a signing ceremony at the Farnborough International Airshow.

"We are honored that Qatar Airways has decided to add Boeing's single-aisle family to its fleet, deepening our relationship with this world-class airline," said Stan Deal, Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO.

"The 737-10 is ideally suited for Qatar Airways' regional network and will provide the carrier with the most capable, most fuel-efficient airplane in its class."

Seating up to 230 passengers with a range of 3,300 nautical miles, the 737-10 is the largest airplane in the 737 MAX family, offering greater fuel efficiency and the best per-seat economics of any single-aisle airplane in the industry. The jet can cover 99% of the world's single-aisle routes.

In January, Boeing and Qatar Airways announced a Memorandum of Understanding for 737 MAX airplanes at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. In addition, the airline became the global launch customer for the new 777-8 Freighter, with an order for up to 50 freighters.

Qatar Airways operates more than 120 Boeing airplanes including 777 and 787 passenger jets along with 747 and 777 freighters.
