Boeing, WestJet confirm 65 737 MAX order

Boeing and WestJet have completed an order by the airline for 65 737 MAXs (40 737 MAX 8s and 25 737 MAX 7s), following the carrier’s Letter of Intent to purchase the aircraft announced on 29 August.
“We are pleased to announce the finalisation of the MAX purchase agreement and look forward to being among the first North American airlines to fly the 737 MAX in 2017,” commented WestJet president and CEO Gregg Saretsky. “The increased fuel efficiency and enhanced in-cabin amenities provided by the Boeing 737 MAX will contribute to both lower operating costs and a remarkable inflight guest experience which is supportive of our low-cost business model and combined with our lease renewal options, maintains our fleet plan flexibility going forward.”
