RE­QUEST FOR FLEET OF LARGER BOE­ING AIR­CRAFT EX­PANDS AIR­LINE’S CA­PAC­ITY. The Vir­gin Aus­tralia Group has con­verted 10 or­ders for the 737 MAX 8 for the larger MAX 10 vari­ant, to ex­pand its sin­gle-aisle fleet from 2022 on­wards.

The air­line, which has a num­ber of 737 MAX 8s on or­der, made the de­ci­sion to add the MAX 10 — the largest mem­ber of the 737 MAX fam­ily — to pro­vide ad­di­tional ca­pac­ity and flex­i­bil­ity.

“We are pleased to be wel­com­ing the 737 MAX 10 air­craft into our ex­pand­ing fleet in 2022,” said Vir­gin Aus­tralia Group Chief Fi­nan­cial Of­fi­cer Ge­off Smith. “We are proud to be­come Aus­tralia’s first op­er­a­tor of the 737 MAX and we look for­ward to the op­por­tu­ni­ties that op­er­at­ing this type of air­craft will open up to us.”

The Next Gen­er­a­tion 737 cur­rently forms the back­bone of the Group’s fleet, with more than 80 in op­er­a­tion. The 737 MAX will fur­ther bol­ster the Group’s fleet ca­pa­bil­ity.
