FARNBOROUGH – A new order for up to 66 737 MAX aircraft, including a definitive order for 30 of the efficient, high-capacity 737-8-200s, was made today by Boeing and 777 Partners.

The American investment company has placed its fifth order for the most fuel-efficient aircraft in its class, quickly expanding its fleet to as many as 134 Boeing 737 MAXs since 2021. The two companies announced the order through a signing ceremony at the Farnborough International Airshow.

With more to come, 777 Partners has used the Boeing 737 MAX to launch a number of low-cost carriers globally. Currently, it has stakes in Bonza Airline (AB), an Australian start-up that will begin flying this year, and Flair Airlines (F8), the only independent ultra-low-cost carrier operating in Canada.

The Miami-based private investment company plans to expand operations by improving income potential while lowering carbon emissions, fuel consumption, and operating expenses with the 737-8-200, which can carry more than 200 passengers.
