Get all the coverage from Farnborough air show on our dedicated landing page

Air Lease has placed orders for another six Boeing 737 Max 8s.

The deal disclosed today at the Farnborough air show covers three new orders and three that were previously attributed to an unidentified customer by Boeing.

Air Lease has the largest 737 Max backlog of any leasing customer, now totalling 118 orders.

"ALC already has lease agreements in place with seven different airlines for 737-8 Max aircraft out of our Boeing delivery stream, starting in the fourth quarter of 2017," says the US lessor's executive chairman Steven Udvar-Hazy.

"The addition of more Boeing 737 Max in our portfolio undoubtedly provides the economics, innovative efficiencies, and enhanced passenger experience that our airline customers are looking for in an aircraft."

It marks the second order announced by Air Lease during the show, after it on 11 July ordered another three Airbus A350s as part of a package which also includes a single A321.
