Booked at the end of last year, the an­nounce­ment in­cludes 100 new 737 MAX 8s, Spice­Jet’s cur­rent or­der for 42 MAXs, 13 ad­di­tional 737 MAXs which were pre­vi­ously at­trib­uted to an uniden­ti­fied cus­tomer on Boe­ing’s Or­ders & De­liv­er­ies web­site, as well as pur­chase rights for 50 ad­di­tional air­planes. “The Boe­ing 737 class of air­craft has been the back­bone of our fleet since Spice­Jet be­gan, with its high re­li­a­bil­ity, low op­er­a­tion economies and com­fort,” said Spice­Jet’s Chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Ajay Singh.
