Chinese carrier Xiamen Airlines has finalised an order with Boeing for 10 737-800s.

The order is valued at $960 million at list prices, says the manufacturer.

The aircraft are scheduled to be delivered between 2017 and 2018, says parent China Southern Airlines in a stock exchange statement.

It adds that the acquisition will be funded by internal resources, as well as through commercial bank loans.

Flightglobal’s Fleets Analyzer database shows that Xiamen operates a fleet of 135 Boeing jets, comprising 125 737s, six 787s and four 757s.

Last December, the airline also signed with Boeing for 30 737 Max aircraft.
