WestJet is increasing its commitment to the Boeing 737 MAX family with an order for 42 737-10 aircraft and options for an additional 22 aircraft. The 737-10 will enable the Canadian carrier to embark on an ambitious network expansion and achieve its long-term sustainability goals.
“The 737-10 will be a game changer with one of the lowest prices per seat among midsize aircraft. This will contribute to our low-cost positioning and accessibility to Canadians,” said Alexis von Hunsbroch, Chief Executive Officer of WestJet Group. “In addition, with lower fuel consumption and lower emissions, the 737-10 will further improve the environmental footprint of our fleet.”
Since starting its business with three 737s in 1996, WestJet has grown its Boeing fleet to more than 100 aircraft, including the 737-8 and 787 Dreamliner. Including the 737-10, the Calgary-based carrier has more than 60 firm orders for the 737 MAX jet family.
