Luxembourg-based small carrier Luxair has become the launch customer for the 737 MAX 7 in Europe. The airline and Boeing entered into an agreement for four aircraft of the smallest MAX model, which will be configured with 160 seats.
Luxair is already a MAX customer, but version 8, from which it also ordered four planes in March. Until you receive your order, the airline is about to have two MAX 8s leased.

“We continue to invest in Luxair’s growth and this agreement for four Boeing 737-7s is an extra step towards securing a long term future for our national airline,” said Gilles Feith, Luxair CEO.
“We are delighted that Luxair has chosen to build upon its 737-8 order by selecting the 737-7 and in doing so becoming the launch customer in Europe for the airplane type,” said Brad McMullen, senior vice president of Global Sales and Marketing , Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Luxair currently operates eight 737 NGs, four 737-700s and four 737-800s. In addition to them, there are also eleven Dash 8-400 turboprops and two Embraer E190s.
The 737 MAX 7 is the next model to be certified by the FAA in Boeing’s family of single-aisle aircraft, however, there is no clear timetable for when this will occur, following several program delays.
