Jet Airways, Vistara on buying spree at Farnborough

Bengaluru: Even as the Indian civil aviation industry blooms with the prospect of emerging as one of the largest markets in the world, the country is certainly evolving as a promising customer base for the world's leading aircraft.
At the ongoing Farnborough Airshow 2018 in the UK, Jet Airways confirmed that it has placed an order with Boeing for additional 75 737 MAX 8 aircraft valued at $8.8 billion at current list prices. This order helps the carrier expand its network to meet surging demand.
"Our latest order for 75 additional Boeing 737 MAX aircraft reflects our long standing association
with Boeing, and reposes our faith in the aircraft they manufacture," Jet Airways Chairman Naresh
Goyal said.
In June, the carrier took delivery of its first MAX, a new and improved 737 that delivers double-digit
improvement in fuel efficiency and improved passenger comfort.
