EL AL orders two additional 737-900ER aircraft from Boeing

Israeli national carrier EL AL has finalised an order from Boeing for two 737-900ER (extended-range) aircraft, valued at approximately $179.2m (£115m).

In March 2011, EL AL ordered four 737-900ERs; the new agreement brings the total to six aircraft on order.

The 737-900ER is a replacement for the single-aisle Boeing 757. It can seat up to 215 passengers and has a range of up to 3,235 nautical miles (5,990km).
