Posted 15 September 2018 · Add Comment

Nigeria’s Air Peace has announced a new order for ten 737 MAX 8 airplanes during a signing ceremony in Lagos.


The Lagos-based airline already operates Boeing 737s between major cities in Central and West Africa. The airline, which recently added Boeing 777s to its fleet, is looking to soon launch its international flight operations.
"We are excited to add the 737 MAX to our fleet as we expand our network to offer more destinations and serve more passengers," said Allen Onyema, chairman and CEO "The fuel efficiency and superior operating economics of the 737 MAX will ensure that the aircraft will play a major role in growing our business in the years to come."
The MAX 8 can fly up to 3,850 nautical miles (7,130 kilometers with its CFM International LEAP-1B engine and Advanced Technology winglets.
”The operating advantages, along with the popular Boeing Sky Interior, explain why carriers have been choosing to fly the MAX in Africa, said Boeing’s senior vice president of commercial sales & marketing. " This order reflects the strong demand that we are seeing for the 737 MAX as airlines choose the airplane's superior performance and reliability."
