May 19, 2017: Seattle-headquartered aircraft manufacturer Boeing has recently delivered the first 737 MAX to Malindo Air. The Malaysia-based airline will be the first to put the 737 MAX into commercial service.

Kevin McAllister, president and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said, “This airplane will change the face of the single-aisle market. The 737 MAX 8 is the best in its class, providing unmatched performance and economics for our airline customers.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Boeing to take the delivery of the world’s first Boeing 737 MAX,” said Chandran Rama Muthy, CEO, Malindo Air. “The Boeing 737NG fleet has served Malindo well in its growth and we believe that the 737 MAX will become the centrepiece of our fleet. These new aircraft will allow us to go to further destinations and will play a key role in providing lower air fares to our customers."

The 737 MAX family is designed to offer the greatest flexibility, reliability and efficiency in the single-aisle market. Every airplane will feature the new Boeing Sky Interior, highlighted by modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting that enhances the sense of spaciousness and larger pivoting overhead stowage bins.
