The fuel efficiency and superior operating economics of the 737 MAX will ensure that the aircraft will play a major role in growing our business in the years to come. Air Peace Chairman and CEO Allen Onyema said in a Boeing news release.

Africa is a growing market for commercial airplanes and we are proud that airlines like Air Peace are selecting Boeing aircraft to be part of that growth, said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company.

This order reflects the strong demand that we are seeing for the 737 MAX as airlines choose the airplane’s superior performance and reliability.
