Jet Airways has hinted at an imminent Boeing 737 Max order, and denied suggestions it has cancelled orders for several 737-800s.

Indian media reports citing unnamed sources claim the carrier has cancelled orders for 16 737-800s from an order placed in 2012.

However, Jet tells Flightglobal this is incorrect and that it has not cancelled its aircraft orders, adding: “The airline has in fact opted for a more fuel-efficient variant.”

Flightglobal’s Ascend Online database shows that Jet still has eight 737-800s on firm order, due for delivery out to 2016. It also holds orders for 10 787-9s.

The Indian carrier has in its fleet 57 737NGs, comprising five-700s, 49 -800s and three -900/900ERs.
