China Eastern to buy 80 737s: Boeing

WASHINGTON (AFP): US aerospace giant Boeing has said that China Eastern Airlines will buy 80 737 aircraft, a mix of current 737s and the new 737 MAX model.

The deal is worth more than USD 8 billion at list prices, Boeing said in a statement. Airlines typically receive discounts on orders.

"We look forward to making history with China Eastern as they are poised to make the largest purchase for single-aisle airplanes by a Chinese airline," said Ihssane Mounir, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Northeast Asia.

Boeing did not provide details on the number of planes ordered by model or delivery dates.

In May, Boeing's arch-rival, European aircraft maker Airbus, won an order from China Southern Airlines for 80 single-aisle A320s with a list value of USD 7.9 billion.

China Eastern, headquartered in Shanghai, operates a fleet of Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
