Boeing has received more than 60 orders and commitments from China for its newly launched 737 MAX 10, a member of the 737 MAX single-aisle aircraft family, according to Boeing China on Saturday.
The orders come from emerging airlines such as Ruili Airlines, as well as all-Boeing-fleet airlines such as Xiamen Airlines, OK Airlines and Donghai Airlines and some Chinese releasing companies, said Boeing China.
It is quite noteworthy to see Chinese clients become launch customers of Boeing's new aircraft model, said Darren Hulst, Managing Director of Marketing for Northeast Asia at Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Boeing launched the 737 MAX 10, the largest member of the 737 MAX aircraft family, at the 2017 Paris Airshow in June.
Installed with CFM LEAP-1B engines, the 737 MAX 10 is capable of flying at a maximum range of 5,955 kilometers.
It is capable of carrying up to 230 passengers with a single-class layout in an all economy-seat version. The aircraft has a body length of 43.8 meters.
The 737 MAX 10 will better serve Chinese airlines to meet the surging demand in high-density air routes with large passenger flows and tense flight schedules, said Hulst.
The 737 MAX aircraft family continues to be the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, gaining more than 3,800 orders from 88 customers worldwide.
