Boeing kicked off the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow with a deal with Xiamen Airlines for up to 30 737 MAX 200s.
The memorandum of understanding (MOU) is valued a $3.39bn at current list prices. Xiamen Airlines, which is a stated-owned subsidiary of China Southern Airlines, is already a 737 MAX customer and has identified the jet, which can accommodate up to 200 passengers, for its low-cost subsidiaries, Jiangxi Airlines and Hebei Airlines.
The deal is subject to approval from the board of Xiamen Airlines, China Southern Airline Group and the Chinese Government.
“We are pleased with this new milestone in our relationship with Xiamen Airlines,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “The market-leading efficiency and reliability of the 737 MAX 200 will enable Xiamen and its subsidiaries to expand its growing network, while maintaining an optimal fleet. This MOU further demonstrates the strength of our enduring partnership and we look forward to finalizing the deal in the near future.”
