Boeing Issues Statement on Lion Air 737 Announcement

Boeing is pleased that Lion Air, Indonesia's first low-cost carrier, has selected the Next-Generation 737. The airline's preliminary agreement with Boeing involves ordering up to 60 airplanes.

The agreement includes a combination of 737-800s and the proposed 737-900X, pending finalization of the definitive agreement and a launch of the 737-900X.

We look forward to continuing to work closely with this valued customer as it expands its operations and serves its passengers.

The Next-Generation 737s fly higher, faster, farther, and more quietly than comparable airplanes, while offering greater fuel efficiency. Overall the 737 airplane family is the world's best-selling commercial jet airplane, with more than 5,500 ordered by 220 customers.
