Lion Air Group orders Boeing aircraft

50 B-737 MAX 10

Boeing and the Lion Air Group announced today the airline purchased 50 of Boeing's new 737 MAX 10 airplane, the single-aisle jet in the aviation industry. The deal, valued at approximately $6.24 billion at list prices, is the largest incremental order to date of the MAX 10 variant. The order was previously listed as unidentified on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website.

The Lion Air Group was first in the world to put the 737 MAX 8 into service and the first to order the /9. Last month the Group became the first to take delivery of a 737 MAX 9, using the airplane's added capacity to launch several international routes.

It is a family of airplanes that offer about 130 to 230 seats with the ability to fly up to 3,850 nautical miles (7,130 kilometers). These jets incorporate the latest CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, the Sky Interior and other features in the single-aisle market. The MAX 10 is the largest variant in the family. At 43.8 m (143 ft 8 in) long, the airplane can seat a maximum of 230 passengers.

The model is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating more than 4,400 orders from 96 customers worldwide.
