The order for 10 Boeing 737 Max 200 planes is in addition to 100 aircraft Ryanair had already ordered from the manufacturer.

Boeing won an endorsement from United Airlines for the latest model of its best-selling 737 jet as it struck an upbeat tone on Tuesday, raising its 20-year industry demand forecast despite recent signs of a slowdown. By signing this provision, the company has become an inaugural customer of an aircraft created to blunt strong sales of rival planemaker Airbus' A321neo.

He said that the company had already garnered more than 240 orders and commitments from 10 customers for the new type, with these planned to be announced throughout the show. He also claimed that 190-230 seat aircraft is enough for India's growth. "We appreciate ACG growing their 737 MAX fleet by joining us in the launch of the new 737 MAX 10". SpiceJet will take delivery of its first 737 MAX in 2018.

"Airlines wanted a larger, better option in the large single-aisle segment with the operating advantages of the 737 MAX family", McAllister said. Blue Air's fleet now includes 29 Boeing 737 aircraft. The Mauritanian flag-carrier now operates a fleet which includes one Next-Generation 737-800, one Next Generation 737-700 and two 737-500s.

Avolon president and chief commercial officer John Higgins said the company procured "very attractive discounts" on the order.

A total of 21 awards were handed out to artists, entertainers and athletes at the show, which was hosted by Leslie Jones . The former First Lady wanted to personally thank Chance for his philanthropic efforts in their hometown of Chicago.

The announcement was made at the Paris Air Show 2017, the world's largest aerospace industry event, where the acquisition contract was signed yesterday.

With the new aircraft, the airline also seeks to offer enhanced services to its customers.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history. While Airbus and Boeing dominate the world's civil aviation industry, the duopoly is not without challengers: competition is looming, notably from Russian Federation and China, which have been test-flying their own midrange models.

He said Clark was interested in the updates Airbus is proposing - including the ability to add 80 seats without reducing comfort and greater fuel economy - that will make the plane cheaper to operate for airlines. "We have no intention of sharing that market with them, albeit a smaller market than we might have thought".
