Canada: WestJet Orders 65 Fuel Efficient Boeing 737 MAX Airplanes


Calgary based air carrier WestJet has ordered 65 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. With the order, a total of 1,567 Boeing MAX airplanes have been ordered worldwide.
The order includes 40 737 MAX 8s and 25 737 MAX 7s.

It is part of the Canadian airline’s programme to renew its fleet.

“The 737 MAX is an excellent complement to the WestJet fleet and its low-cost business model,” says Brad McMullen, vice president of North America Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

“The airplane’s efficiency, reliability and passenger amenities will enable WestJet to continue to provide its customers high-quality service at a low cost.”

The Boeing 737 MAX offers the greatest fuel efficiency of any single aisle airplane, reducing fuel consumption by 13%.

“We are pleased to announce the finalization of the MAX purchase agreement and look forward to being among the first North American airlines to fly the 737 MAX in 2017,” says WestJet President and CEO Gregg Saretsky.

“The increased fuel efficiency and enhanced in-cabin amenities provided by the Boeing 737 MAX will contribute to both lower operating costs and a remarkable in-flight guest experience which is supportive of our low-cost business model and combined with our lease renewal options, maintains our fleet plan flexibility going forward.”
