India's Jet Airways to add maiden B737 MAX 8 in 3Q18

Jet Airways  is slated to take delivery of its first of seventy-five B737 MAX 8s on order from Boeing  during the second quarter of next year.

According to the PTI news agency, airline Chief Financial Officer and acting CEO, Amit Agarwal, told a conference call this week that the first MAX 8 would arrive in June 2018. The narrowbody twinjet will supplement Jet Airways' existing B737 fleet of two B737-700s, sixty B737-800s, and six B737-900s.

According to Agarwal, this year, Jet Airways will lease an additional 6-8 aircraft, primarily B737NextGens, sourced from the open market.
