SunExpress Finalizes Order for 15 737 MAX 8s and 25 Next-Generation 737-800s

Boeing and SunExpress have finalized an order for 15 737 MAX 8s and 25 Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes. The order is valued at more than $3.8 billion at list prices and includes options for 10 additional 737 MAX 8s.

The order is the largest ever in the Turkish carrier’s near 25 year history, and brings the total number of orders for the 737 MAX to nearly 1,800.

“Twenty four years ago we have started to fly tourists to Turkey with brand-new 737-300s, ten years later the company began to operate the Next-Generation 737-800s and next year at the age of 25, SunExpress will start the process of renewing its entire fleet and in the future add the latest achievement of Boeing, the 737 MAX,” said Paul Schwaiger, managing director of SunExpress. “We value our long and successful relationship with Boeing and we are grateful for the company’s endless support over so many years.”
