Boeing and Turkish Airlines finalise $1.6bn order

Boeing and Turkish Airlines today finalised an order for 15 additional 737 MAX 8s valued at $1.6bn at list prices.

The order follows the announcement in May 2013 when the Turkish flag carrier placed the largest Boeing order in the airline’s history for 50 737 MAXs and 20 Next-Generation 737s.

The Istanbul-based carrier currently operates a fleet of more than 100 Next-Generation 737s and 15 777-300ERs.
