British Airways Owner IAG Orders 50 Boeing 737 Max Jets - BLOOMBERG
British Airways owner IAG SA said it reached a deal with Boeing Co. for 50 737 Max jets, which will be delivered starting next year.
London-based IAG said the Boeing jets, 25 of which will be the high capacity Max 200 and 25 as-yet-uncertified Max 10s, can be used by any airline in the group for fleet replacement.
The order is a big boost for the new version of Boeing’s workhorse single-aisle jetliner, which was grounded for almost two years following two fatal crashes.
The order, which IAG said it had negotiated a “substantial discount” on, also includes options for another 100 planes, which would be available between 2025 and 2028.
