Boeing yesterday marked the first delivery of the new 737 MAX. The airplane, a 737 MAX 8, was handed over to Malindo Air at the Seattle Delivery Center in the United States.
Based in Malaysia with headquarters in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malindo Air will be the first to put the Boeing 737 MAX into commercial service.
The 737 MAX family is designed to offer the greatest flexibility, reliability and efficiency in the single-aisle market.
The airplanes will feature the new Boeing Sky Interior, highlighted by modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting that enhances the sense of spaciousness and larger pivoting overhead stowage bins.
Launched in 2011, the 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing’s history. To date, it has received almost 3,700 orders from 87 customers across the world.
