Jet Airways places order for 75 additional 737 Max aircraft from Boeing

Boeing Adds Commitments For Almost 200 737s

Jet Airways places order for 75 additional 737 Max aircraft from Boeing

India's Jet Airways also ordered 75 737MAX 8 jets worth $8.8 billion, while Aviation Capital Group and Goshawk Aviation each ordered 20 Boeing 737MAX jets worth $2.3 billion per deal. Airbus said it received orders and commitments for 431 aircraft, compared with 326 at the Paris event.

All this action and we're only two days into the week-long show.

Muilenburg added: "We will continue to win in the marketplace thanks to our talented team, who innovate across our enterprise with One Boeing collaboration and deliver on our proven portfolio with relentless customer focus".

On Tuesday, Reuters reported that the first order for 80 aircraft came from China's ICBC Leasing.

The total orders placed now tops 800.

Airbus is now tackling payment delays from HNA Group which led to a backlog of undelivered wide-body A330 jets, first reported by Reuters last week.

Avolon is owned by HNA vehicle Bohai Leasing, but made changes in its bond structure earlier this year to insulate itself from the parent group's financial difficulties.

Avolon CEO Domhnal Slattery said this week those measures were working smoothly, but did not discuss order plans.

Planemakers often strike deals during the year with customers without disclosing their identity, especially in countries like China with complex government approval processes.

Boeing continues to dominate the world's aerospace market, with the US plane maker announcing it outsold Airbus at the 2018 Farnborough Airshow in England.

As a result, the trade show has also become the battleground where Airbus and Boeing hold dueling press conferences to announce sale after sale after sale.

Market sources did not rule out a headline-grabbing finale.

Hawaiian Airlines [HAII.UL] said on Thursday it would buy 10 787-9 widebodies from Boeing Co (BA.N) with purchase rights for up to 10 more 787 aircraft, putting pressure on rival Airbus (AIR.PA) to defend its A330neo jet against the Boeing series.
