Nok Air finalizes order for 737 MAXs, Next-Generation 737s
Boeing and Nok Air finalized an order for eight Next-Generation 737-800s and seven 737 MAX 8s. Nok Air also announced that it intends to convert one of the 737-800s into a 737 MAX at a later date. The order, first announced as a commitment at the Singapore Air Show in February, is valued at $1.45bn at list prices and will establish Nok Air as the first airline in Thailand to operate the 737 MAX. While Nok Air currently operates a fleet of 15 Next-Generation 737s, this marks the airline’s first direct order with Boeing.
