Jet Airways has ordered 75 additional Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, taking the total to 225 now. Prior to this, the airline ordered 75 737 MAX aircraft in 2015 and 75 in April this year.
As per Boeing’s list price, this latest deal could be worth as much as $9.7 billion. However, huge discounts are provided by the manufacturer when multiple aircraft are ordered.
Following this new agreement, the full-service carrier aims to expand its position in the domestic aviation market.
