Aviation Capital Group (ACG) has ordered 60 Boeing 737 MAX planes. ACG’s order, consisting of 50 737 MAX 8s and 10 737 MAX 9s, was finalised in December 2012. According to Denis Kalscheur, chief executive officer of ACG, the order was a major step in building a broad portfolio of modern, fuel-efficient airplanes. The order, worth $6 billion at current list prices, illustrates the strong demand for the 737 MAX in the airplane leasing industry. Incidentally, with the ACG order, the 737 MAX has orders for 1,029 airplanes from airlines and leasing companies worldwide.
