On Tuesday (September 5, 2023), Boeing announced that they have finalized an incremental order with Aviation Capital Group (ACG) for 13 additional MAX Family airplanes, including Seven 737-8s and six 737-10s, increasing the lessor’s orderbook to 47 MAX jets. The Boeing 737-8 MAX can carry up to 210 passengers, depending on configuration, and offers a range of up to 3,500 nautical miles. The 737-10, the largest MAX Family member, seats up to 230 passengers and has a range of 3,100 nautical miles. Both variants reduce fuel burn and emissions by 20 percent and offer a 50 percent smaller noise footprint compared to the aircraft they replace.


In Tuesday’s announcement, ACG’s Vice President and Chief of Aircraft Operations, Steven Udvar-Hazy, said,


“We are pleased to expand ACG's commitment to the 737 MAX program. This additional order will allow ACG to offer highly fuel efficient and versatile aircraft to our airline customers worldwide. The 737 MAX family offers carriers enhanced efficiency and route flexibility for short- and medium-haul air travel, making it a valuable asset for airplane lessors such as ACG. Lessors have ordered more than 1,300 737 MAX jets.


Also commenting on the order finalization, Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ Vice President of Global Leasing Commercial Sales and Marketing, Christy Reese, said,


“ACG's growing and diverse 737 MAX portfolio allows its customers to operate a more sustainable, efficient fleet. We look forward to helping ACG deliver the most fuel-efficient airplanes in the industry to its airline partners.”


Aviation Capital Group (ACG) is one of the world’s leading aircraft asset managers, and has a fleet of over 480 owned, managed and committed aircraft as of June 30, 2023, which are leased to approximately 90 airlines in 45 countries. Founded in 1989, ACG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tokyo Century Corporation.
