WestJet intends to order 65 737 Max aircraft

Canadian carrier WestJet is intending to order 65 Boeing 737 Max twinjets for delivery from September 2017.

The airline says it has agreed, through a letter of intent, to take 40 Max 8 and 25 Max 7 variants.

All the aircraft will be fitted, as standard, with CFM International Leap-1B engines.

"This pending order reinforces our strategy of maintaining the flexibility in our fleet plan while enabling us to introduce new fuel-efficient technology and enhance our inflight guest experience," says WestJet chief Gregg Saretsky.

"Our strong balance sheet allows us the opportunity to support our low-cost business model and contribute to our profitable growth through the renewal of our fleet with a lower operating cost aircraft."
