Akasa Air orders 150 more B-737 MAX jet aircraft
It was revealed at the "Wings India 2024 airshow" (18-21) -DATA SHEET
Boeing and Akasa Air announced yesterday the Indian carrier has placed a follow-on 737 MAX order, confirming 150 more fuel-efficient jets in its order book. The purchase of 737/10 airplanes and additional 737/8-200 jets by India’s all-737 operator was revealed at the "Wings India 2024 airshow" (January 18-21).
The airline will leverage the 737 MAX family to expand its domestic and international network in the coming years. Since launching operations in 2022, it has captured approximately 4% of India’s domestic market, serving 18 destinations with a fleet of 22 B-737 MAX jets.
Both 737 MAX variants will provide Akasa Air with added capacity and range on new and existing routes, while reducing fuel use and carbon emissions compared to older-generation airplanes.
As Akasa Air looks to expand its network in India and South Asia, Boeing’s 2023 Commercial Market outlook forecasts delivery of 2,705 new commercial airplanes over the next 20 years for the region, of which nearly 90% will be single-aisle jets.
This order finalized in December 2023 and was unidentified on the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website, while its previous orders can be found on it:
Akasa Air orders 72 fuel-efficient 737 MAX airplanes to launch service in fast-growing Indian market
Akasa Air orders four 737/8s to support international growth plans.
