Boeing Xiamen Airlines, China’s only all-Boeing carrier, have finalized an order for 10 Next-Generation 737-800s.

The order, valued at $960 million at list prices, will be posted on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website once all contingencies are cleared.

“The 737-800 is the best-selling version of the highly successful Next-Generation 737 family,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Northeast Asia Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We are pleased to see the 737-800 continues to play an important role in Xiamen Airlines’ fleet expansion.”

Mirroring the rapid growth of China’s air travel industry, the carrier now has expanded its fleet in service to 135 airplanes – 17 737-700s, 108 737-800s, 4 757-200s and 6 787-8 Dreamliners.
