Posted 19 June 2017 · Add Comment

Boeing and GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric have announced an order for 20 of the new 737 MAX 10 at the Paris Air Show by converting 20 of its current MAX orders to the larger MAX 10 which was launched today.

“This MAX 10 order further enhances our fleet with the newest technology, offering our customers commonality along with increased range and available seating,” said Alec Burger, president and chief executive officer of GECAS. “Combining the increased capacity of the MAX 10 and the CFM International LEAP-1B engines offers our customers many benefits.” 

GECAS has 170 MAX airplanes on order, the largest of any aircraft leasing company.

“Simply put, the MAX 10 will be the most profitable airplane the single-aisle sector has ever seen,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Kevin McAllister. “GECAS understands the benefits the MAX 10 will bring to its customers across the globe. We appreciate their continued confidence in the MAX family.

"The 737 MAX 10 extends the competitive advantage of the 737 MAX family and we're honored that so many customers across the world have embraced the outstanding value it will bring to their fleets. Airlines wanted a larger, better option in the large single-aisle segment with the operating advantages of the 737 MAX family. Adding the 737 MAX 10 gives our customers the most flexibility in the market, providing their fleets the range capability, fuel efficiency and unsurpassed reliability that the 737 MAX family is widely known for."
