Vietnam start-up Bamboo Airways says it is considering an order for 25 Boeing 737 Max jets, as it announced a purchase for 10 787-9s.
"Details of the contract will be reviewed and announced by both parties after reaching the necessary agreements," says Bamboo, adding that the narrowbody contract is valued at $2.5 billion.
The carrier firmed an order for 10 787-9s on 27 February, in a ceremony witnessed by US president Donald Trump and Vietnam president Nguyen Phu Trong. The 10 aircraft is part of of its commitment for 20 of the type first announced in June 2018.
No engine selection was announced.
Cirium's Fleets Analyzer shows that Bamboo has six Airbus A320 family jets in service, another three on order, as well as letters of intent for another 24 A321neos.
