Xiamen Airlines Deals With Boeing For 737 Max 200s
On July 11th 2016, Edward Russell wrote an article on Flight Global talking about how Xiamen Airlines is planning to acquire up to 30 Boeing 737 Max 200s. These 737 Max 200s can hold up to 200 passengers with the all economy floor plan.
Here is what Ray Conner, the chief executive of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, has to say
"The market-leading efficiency and reliability of the 737 Max 200 will enable Xiamen and its subsidiaries to expand its growing network, while maintaining an optimal fleet."
This deal between Boeing and Xiamen Airlines is worth a little over $3 billion at list price. This deal was approved not only by Xiamen Airlines but also its parent company China Southern Airline Group along with the Chinese government.
Xiamen Airlines also has subsidiaries Hebei Airlines and Jiangxi Airlines. Here is what Russell has to say about the types of planes each subsidiary has in their fleet.
“Hebei operates nine 737-700s and -800s, and six Embraer 190s, while Jiangxi operates three 737-800s, Flight Fleets Analyzer indicates. Hebei has firm orders for seven 737-800s and one E190.”
