South Korea-based Jeju Air has ordered three Next-Generation 737-800s valued at nearly USD 300 million at current list prices, Boeing (NYSE: BA) said.
The order will become the airline's first direct-purchased airplanes from Boeing and continues its expansion within Asia's rapidly growing air travel market. The order was previously attributed to an unidentified customer on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website.
The carrier currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of 26 Next-Generation 737-800s.
Jeju Air was established as Korea's first low-cost carrier in 2005 and launched operations in 2006. The carrier currently serves 40 domestic and international routes with approximately 150 daily flights.
The 737-800 is the best-selling version of the Next-Generation 737 family. Jeju Air's new 737 will feature the Boeing Sky Interior, the 787 Dreamliner inspired cabin, providing passengers a greater sense of spaciousness with decorative sculpted sidewalls, larger window reveals, LED mood lighting and larger pivot overhead stowage bins.
