Lion Air to seal huge plane order today

Lion Air will place the world’s largest aircraft order later today. The deal, expected to be announced in Indonesia today in the presence of US President Barack Obama, will see Lion Air commit to the purchase of 201 Boeing 737 MAX and 29 Next-Generation B737-900ER narrow-body aircraft, and options for an additional 150 planes.

With 230 aircraft at a list price of US$21.7 billion, this deal will be the largest commercial aircraft order ever in history by unit numbers, and Boeing’s largest both by dollar value.
