Southwest Airlines orders 100 Boeing 737 MAX aircrafts



Southwest Airlines said it has reached an agreement to order 100 Boeing 737 MAX jets, the first 30 of which are expected to be delivered by 2022.

The Boeing 737 MAX aircraft ordered during this batch will be used to replace old Southwest Airlines aircraft.  The airline will also convert 70 of the company's orders from the MAX 8 family to the MAX 7 family and choose to purchase an additional 155 MAX 7 or MAX 8 aircraft between 2022 and 2029.

Thus, Southwest Airlines has ordered a total of 349 MAX series aircraft, including 200 MAX 7 and 149 MAX 8 aircraft. In addition, it will buy 270 additional MAX 7 or MAX 8 aircraft until 2031.

 Southwest Airlines previously ordered 249 MAX aircraft and purchased 115 additional MAX 7 or MAX 8 aircraft for the period from 2021 to 2026.

The aforementioned aircraft purchase agreement reinforces Southwest Airlines' commitment to adding more efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft.  At the same time, Southwest Airlines is able to increase the number of aircraft and its carrying capacity.

 Southwest Airlines says 28 MAX 8 aircraft will be delivered this year.  At the same time, the airline will also shut down 17 old 737-700 aircraft.  Accordingly, by the end of 2021, this airline will have a total of 729 aircraft, 69 of which will be MAX 8 aircraft.

 In early March 2021, United Airlines announced it had purchased 25 new Boeing 737 MAX jets to add to its fleet, in an effort to boost deliveries of aircraft that the airline has pre-ordered as demand for air travel begins to increase again.
