Boeing and Thailand’s Nok Airlines have confirmed a commitment from the airline to order eight Next-Generation 737-800s and seven 737 MAX 8s in a deal worth $1.45bn to Boeing.

The commitment, announced at the Singapore Airshow, will establish Nok Air as the first airline in Thailand to operate the 737 MAX.

While Nok Air currently operates a fleet of 14 Next-Generation 737s, this will mark the airline’s first direct order with Boeing.
