European launch customer Boeing's 737 MAX 7 is Luxair with deal for 4 aircraft.

Luxair has chosen to be the European launch customer for Boeing's 737 MAX 7 jet as the small carrier places an order for four of the jets.  

Since March 2023, Luxair has placed orders for four 737 MAX 8 aircraft so with this new order the carrier has commitments for 8 aircraft.  Luxair will also initially lease two used 737- MAX 8s, due this summer, before taking direct delivery of its first 737 MAX 8.                                                                  
Gilles Feith, Luxair's CEO said:  "We continue to invest in Luxair's growth and this agreement for four Boeing 737-7 is an extra step towards securing a long-term future for our national airline. This type of aircraft is a perfect match for Luxair and will meet the requirements of the market. Seating 160 passengers, the 737-7 will offer flexibility across the Luxair destination network while significantly reducing fuel consumption. This will help us get even closer to our commitment to sustainable flights while demonstrating once again our support to the promise of "Net-Zero carbon emissions by 2050" submitted by IATA," 

Brad McMullen, senior vice president of Global Sales and Marketing of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, stated "We are delighted that Luxair has chosen to build upon its 737-8 order by selecting the 737-7 and in doing so becoming the launch customer in Europe for the aeroplane type,

The 737-7 is perfectly suited across Luxair's network, seamlessly integrating in to its existing fleet and adding capacity on to regional routes. By selecting the 737-7 Luxair will operate a common fleet allowing it to move aircraft around the network-based, increasing and dropping capacity based on seasonality and demand, ensuring maximum profitability flying all year round."
