CHICAGO – Boeing Co said on Tuesday it signed its largest ever commercial airplane order with Indonesia’s Lion Air in a deal worth $22.4 billion.
Boeing said Lion Air, Indonesia’s largest carrier by passenger volume, has ordered 230 airplanes, including 201 737 MAXs and 29 next-generation 737-900 ERs.
Lion Air will also acquire purchase rights for an additional 150 airplanes, Boeing said.
The announcement was made in a statement at the Singapore airshow.
In November, Lion Air announced the original massive order during U.S. President Barack Obama’s Asia-Pacific tour. Europe’s Airbus had accused the United States of applying political pressure to secure the deal.
