Virgin Australia converts order for 10 MAX 10's

Virgin Australia and aircraft makers Boeing have confirmed that the Australian carrier has converted its ten orders for the 737 MAX 8 to the larger MAX 10 variant.

Virgin Australia Group Chief Financial Officer Geoff Smith said, "We are pleased to be welcoming the 737 MAX 10 aircraft into our expanding fleet in 2022. The addition of the 737 MAX 10 will provide us with additional flexibility and capability to support our network and operations. We are proud to become Australia's first operator of the 737 MAX and we look forward to the opportunities that operating this type of aircraft will open up to us."


With its headquarters in Brisbane, Australia, the Virgin Australia Group is the country's second-largest airline with a fleet of more than 130 aircraft. The Next-Generation 737 has formed the backbone of the Group's fleet with more than 80 currently in operation and the 737 MAX is expected to bolster the Group's fleet.

"We are excited to expand our partnership with the Virgin Australia Group as they look to introduce the 737 MAX 10 in to their world-class fleet," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing, The Boeing Company. "The MAX 10 will provide the airline with added capabilities, especially with the extended range and efficiency, to better support their fleet and network."
