The new airplane is set to enter service in 2020 and means the MAX family now comes in five different versions: the MAX 7, MAX 8, MAX 9, MAX 10 and also a high-density version of the 8 called the MAX 200.
At the Paris Air Show, Boeing as expected launched the MAX 10, a larger model of its 737 airplane.
• India’s SpiceJet signed a memorandum of understanding for 40, half of which were conversions from existing MAX orders.
• And TUI Group of Germany, which operates charter and scheduled flights for European tourists, converted 18 existing 737 MAX orders to the MAX 10.
Boeing launched the new 737 MAX 10 on the opening day of the Paris Air Show, reporting that it has 240 orders and commitments to announce this week.
Boeing will this week show off a 737 Max-9, which has struggled to attract customers.
PARIS — Boeing is announcing plans for a new, longer version of its 737 Max jet at the Paris Air Show in hopes of boosting orders for the single-aisle plane in its race with European rival Airbus.
It is expected to cost a bit more than the 737 Max-9, which runs at $119 million according to list prices.
The CEO of Boeing’s commercial planes operations, Kevin McAllister, said Monday that the 737 Max-10 will offer customers more flexibility and seating space.
The Max series of jets are designed to be a more fuel-efficient version of the workhorse 737, Boeing’s most popular commercial plane.
