Jakarta-based Lion Air orders 230 aircraft from Boeing

Boeing and Jakarta-based Lion Air have finalised a firm order for 201 737 MAX aircraft and 29 Next-Generation 737-900ER (extended-range) aircraft.

The agreement, first announced last November in Indonesia, also includes purchase rights for an additional 150 aircraft.

With orders for 230 aircraft valued at $22.4bn (£14.2bn) at list prices, this deal is the largest commercial aircraft order ever in Boeing’s history by both dollar value and the total number of aircraft.

Lion Air will also acquire purchase rights for an additional 150 aircraft.
