Spanish carrier Air Europa has emerged as the customer behind a previously-unattributed order for 20 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets.

The airframer disclosed the agreement during the Farnborough air show.

Air Europa parent company Globalia’s president Juan Jose Hidalgo, says the type is “perfect” for the carrier’s short-haul European operations.

All 737 Max jets will be powered by CFM International Leap-1B engines.

Air Europa has been taking delivery of Boeing 787s as part of a fleet modernisation programme. The carrier has ordered 22 787s and the mainline airline is aiming to become an all-Boeing operator.
