Jackson Square Aviation (JSA) has ordered 30 737 MAX airplanes from Boeing.
The two companies signed a $3.5 billion deal at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow. Jackson Square Aviation becomes 100th customer of 737 MAX program with order valued at $3.5 billion
“Today’s order is an exciting moment in the history of Jackson Square Aviation,” said Toby Bright, JSA’s chief executive officer. “We are excited to become even more of a full-service partner for our airline customers by expanding our fleet of 737 MAX airplanes as global demand for narrow-body jets continues to rise. The MAX is quickly becoming an important part of our portfolio and we look forward to offering this modern, fuel-efficient and reliable aircraft to airlines around the world. We have carefully evaluated how speculative orders can enhance our long-term business model, and this transaction signifies the next step in that development.”
Jackson Square Aviation chose the 737 MAX 8, which offers 162 to 178 seats in a standard two-class configuration and flies up to 3,550 nautical miles (6,570 kilometers), while improving fuel efficiency 14 percent over its predecessor.
“Jackson Square Aviation has reached significant heights since its founding, having financed more than 100 Boeing airplanes. We are proud to have been their partner and we are extremely honored that JSA has chosen to expand its business on the wings of the 737 MAX,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company. “The 737 MAX is the best airplane in the single-aisle segment. It will provide Jackson Square Aviation’s customers with exceptional efficiency, improved range and unmatched reliability.”
The Boeing 737 MAX family brings the latest technology to the most popular jet aircraft of all time, the 737. The 737 MAX is designed to provide passengers with a comfortable flying experience and more direct routes to their favorite destinations.
Airlines are taking advantage of the MAX’s incredible range and flexibility, offering passengers connections to smaller cities around the globe including transatlantic and trans-continental routes.
The unmatched reliability of the MAX means more 737 flights depart on time with fewer delays. And technological advances plus powerful LEAP-1B engines are helping to redefine the future of efficient and environmentally friendly air travel.
