Luxair (LG) became the European launch customer of the Boeing 737-7 after placing an order for four of the smallest members of the MAX family.
Indian low-cost carrier Akasa Air (QP) has expanded its fleet of Boeing 737-8s by ordering four more examples. They join the 23 -8s and 53 of the larger -8-200s already on order.
Boeing and Air Lease Corporation (ALC) also announced the purchase of two 787 Dreamliners.
Other important news events included the Lanzhou Group becoming the launch customer for China's Embraer's Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion. It will now serve as the base in China for Embraer's P2F conversions.
