OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian Air has agreed to buy 50 Boeing (NYSE:) 737 MAX aircraft and has secured options to acquire a further 30 planes, the budget carrier said on Monday.
“The 50 aircraft are due to be delivered between 2025 and 2028, at a schedule closely corresponding to current aircraft lease expirations. This entails a limited net increase of the company’s current fleet,” Norwegian said in a statement.
As a result of the agreements, the airline expects to book a net gain of approximately 2 billion crowns ($212.2 million).
