AerCap has placed an order for 100 Boeing 737 Max 8s, joining the customer list for the manufacturer's re-engined narrowbody family.

"This order complements our existing orderbook in the single-aisle category and is in line with our customer needs and our fleet strategy of leasing the most-in-demand and technologically advanced equipment," says AerCap chief executive Aengus Kelly.
