Garuda Indonesia signs order for 50 737 MAX 8s
Boeing and Garuda Indonesia announced an order for 50 737 MAX 8s, valued at $4.9bn at current list prices. The flag carrier of Indonesia will purchase 46 737 MAX 8s and will convert existing orders for four Next-Generation 737-800s to 737 MAX 8s. The order was previously accounted for on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries Web site, attributed to an unidentified customer. Garuda Indonesia currently operates 77 Boeing 737s. The new order gives the airline the flexibility to grow and to update its fleet as the market demands.
