Okay Airways has placed an order for 12 Boeing 737 aircraft.

Signed at the Singapore Airshow, the deal is valued at US$1.3 billion at current list prices and includes eight B737 MAX 8s, three larger B737 MAX 9s and one B737-900ER. The order also contains purchase rights for an additional eight B737 MAX 8 aircraft.

“We greatly value the ties we have built over the years with Boeing,” said Wang Shusheng, chairman of Okay Airways. “The Boeing… 737 has been the mainstay of our fleet since we started operations. The introduction of additional 737s, including the new 737 MAX, will further modernise our fleet and ensure we operate the most efficient fleet well into the future.”

This deal will mark the first B737 MAX 9 order by a Chinese airline.  Based in Tianjin, Okay Airways currently operates a fleet of 30 passenger aircraft, comprising 14 B737-800s, three B737-900ERs and 13 Chinese-made Xian MA-60s.
