Malaysia Air, Boeing Sign 16-plane MOU

Malaysia Air, Boeing Sign 16-plane MOU”

The signing of the memorandum of understanding (MoU), Boeing said, was witnessed by Minister of Trade Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed in the presence of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in Washington, US, yesterday.

Kok's questions followed reports today that Najib, who is now visiting the White House, had told US President Donald Trump that Malaysia Airlines would buy 25 Boeing 737 jets and eight 787 Dreamliners, and would probably add another 25 737s in the near future. So far, airlines have caught on, as the MAX has amassed over 3,700 orders from almost 90 different customers from across the globe, making it the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing's 101-year history.

"Number one, we want to help you in terms of strengthening the U.S. economy", Najib told his United States hosts at the White House cabinet room, according to official transcripts of the event.

"New wide-body aircraft are a key to making Malaysia Airlines a premium airline offering a five star product again".

The Memorandum of Understanding converts a previous order for Boeing 737 MAXs to the larger 787-9, and adds the 737 MAX purchase rights.

Malaysia Airlines now operates more than 50 Next-Generation 737s and has an additional 25 737 MAXs on order, including 10 for the new 737 MAX 10.

Malaysia Airlines became the latest carrier with plans to update its fleet with Boeing Co.'s 787 Dreamliner, announcing a plan late Tuesday to buy eight of the wide-body planes assembled in North Charleston and Everett, Wash. We have committed to 25 planes of the 737 MAX 10, plus eight 787 Dreamliners, and a very strong probability-not possibility-that we will add 24-25 more 737 MAX 10 in the near future.

The 787 is a family of technologically advanced, super-efficient airplanes with new passenger-pleasing features and uses 25 percent less fuel and with 20 to 25 percent fewer emissions than the airplanes it replaces.

Boeing touts the 737 MAX as "designed to offer the greatest flexibility, reliability, and efficiency in the single-aisle market". The care service covers maintenance of the airline's current fleet, as well as future Boeing airplanes.
