A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Boeing and Qatar Airways for a definite order of 25 737-10 planes and buy rights for another 25 planes.
At current list pricing, this 737-10 commitment is worth roughly $7 billion.
The 737-10 is the largest aircraft in the MAX family, with 230 seats in a single-class layout with a range of 3,300 miles. The fuel-efficient plane can fly 99 percent of single-aisle routes worldwide.
“Qatar Airways very much looks forward to adding the 737-10 to its fleet, with this new variant of the 737 being ideally suited to our short haul network, allowing us an opportunity to further enhance our product offering for our customers, modernize our fleet and operate the most efficient aircraft in its category,” said Akbar Al Baker.
“The largest member of the 737 family, the 737-10 is an airplane that offers more capacity, greater fuel efficiency and the best per-seat economics of any single-aisle airplane,” said Deal. “We are proud of our partnership with Qatar Airways and honored that this world class airline continues to put its trust in our Boeing team.”
