Lessors have accounted for a large portion of Boeing’s aircraft orders. The manufacturer claims that more than 1,300 737 MAX jets orders were sourced from these companies.

“ACG’s growing and diverse 737 MAX portfolio allows its customers to operate a more sustainable, efficient fleet,” said Christy Reese, Boeing vice president of Global Leasing Commercial Sales & Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We look forward to helping ACG deliver the most fuel-efficient airplanes in the industry to its airline partners.”

The 737 MAX 8 has been in service since while the MAX 10 continues in the certification process, with commercial operations expected to begin in 2024.
