Malaysia Airlines has signed for 10 Boeing 737-800s at the Paris air show, confirming existing options from a 2008 deal.

The order, worth more than $800m, takes MAS's total 737 orders to 45 aircraft. Deliveries of the 10 new orders are due in 2016 after the remaining 30 aircraft from the original deal arrive. They are due through to 2015.

The airline has 10 options remaining from its original deal, said MAS chief executive Azmil Zahruddin.
