Third customer for Boeing 737MAX in Oceania

Fiji Airways has reached an agreement with Boeing and GECAS for the purchase of 5 Boeing 737MAX aircraft. The aircraft will be acquired via a sale-and-lease-back construction. Upon delivery the airframes will be promptly sold to lessor GECAS and leased back.

Fiji Airways currently operates a fleet of 4 Airbus A330 airframes and 5 Boeing 737NG aircraft. The Boeing 737 aircraft will be replaced 1-on-1 by the MAX.

After Polish Air, which ordered 4 Boeing 737MAX aircraft, Fiji Airways becomes the second customer for the 737MAX this week.
