Singapore Airlines subsidiary Silk Air has finalised orders for 23 737-800s and 31 MAX 8s in a deal worth US$4.9 billion at list prices.  The order is the largest in the airline’s history.

“The capability of the 737s will enable us to spread our wings to even more destinations and increase capacity on existing routes,” said SilkAir chief executive Leslie Thng.

Orders for the 737 MAX family are edging closer to 1,000, with 969 so far confirmed.
