B737 MAX first delivery

Malaysian carrier Malindo Air entered the Boeing record books last week as the aircraft manufacturer heralded the first delivery of the new B737 MAX with the handover of a Dash-8. Malindo will be the first to put the 737 MAX into commercial service.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Kevin McAllister said the aircraft was destined to “change the face of the single-aisle market” as “the best in its class, providing unmatched performance and economics for our airline customers”.

Malindo Air CEO Chandran Rama Muthy added: “We are thrilled to partner with Boeing to take the delivery of the world’s first Boeing 737 MAX. The B737NG fleet has served Malindo well in its growth and these new aircraft will allow us to go to further destinations and play a key role in providing lower fares to our customers."

Boeing says the 737 MAX family is designed to offer the greatest flexibility, reliability and efficiency in the single-aisle market, with every aircraft also featuring the new Boeing Sky Interior.
