Allegiant Air orders up to 100 B-737 MAX aircraft
Growing US carrier places first direct order for 50 jets, with options -DATA SHEET
Boeing and Allegiant Air announced in the last days an order for 50 B-737 MAX jets, with options for 50 additional airplanes. In Boeing's first US ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC) deal, Allegiant selected two models –the 737/7 and 737/8-200– in the 737 MAX family.
With commonality and improved fuel efficiency, the 737 MAX family enables airlines to optimize their fleets across a broad range of missions. The 737/7 provides low-operating costs that enable carriers to open new routes with less economic risk, and the larger 737/8-200 offers added revenue potential and is right-sized for ULCC market expansion.
Both will partner on entry-into-service support, enabling a smooth transition as the carrier adds the 737 into its operation. Allegiant will also utilize a suite of Boeing Global Services digital tools to further enhance operational efficiency. Currently it operates a fleet of 108 A-319 and A-320 airplanes.
