AIR CHINA ORDERS TWO 737s FROM BOEING

 SEATTLE, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Air China, that nation's main international carrier, will take delivery of two 737-300 jetliners, the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group confirmed today.
 The contract was signed recently by China Aviation Supplies Corp., the central purchasing agency. Total value is about $70 million. China now has committed to receive 95 Boeing 737-300s, including leased airplanes, 55 of which have been delivered.
 Thanks to a growing economy, China enjoyed a 33-percent passenger traffic growth in 1992; this year's increase is forecast at around 20 percent. With today's announcement, China has ordered 28 Boeing aircraft since the beginning of 1993.
 The Boeing 737, sales champion leading all jetliners, is in many respects among the world's most advanced civil airplanes. For example, 737s have one of the most modern flight management computer systems in the industry. At the same time, the 737s retain the reliability and operational simplicity for which the type has become known.
