Boeing, Aviation Capital Group finalize order for 13 737 MAX jets

(Reuters) – Boeing and aircraft leasing firm Aviation Capital Group on Tuesday finalized an order for 13 737 MAX jets, the companies said in a statement.

The order, which increases Aviation Capital’s order book to 47 737 MAXs, includes seven 737-8 and six 737-10 jets.

Airlines, which have been struggling with limited supply of jets, are increasingly turning to aircraft leasing companies to add to their capacity following strong demand for air travel.
