Norwegian Air has agreed to purchase 50 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. The agreement also includes options for an additional 30 aircraft.
The 50 aircraft are due to be delivered between 2025 and 2028. Norwegian expects to finalise the order by the end of June.
The deal includes compensation to Norwegian as settlement for previous disputes over Max and Dreamliner aircraft deliveries and technical issues, triggering a financial gain of 2 billion Norwegian crowns ($212.2 million), the airline said.
The purchase agreement demonstrates Norwegian’s continuously strong commitment to operate a modern and fuel-efficient fleet. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 is approximately 14 percent more fuel-efficient compared to the previous-generation aircraft, putting the company on strong footing to achieve its target of reducing emissions by 45 percent by 2030.
