Lion Air bosses set to meet Boeing over MAX orders

Lion Air chiefs plans to meet Boeing officials on 30 November to review the Indonesia carrier’s orders until 2035 for Boeing 737 MAX series aircraft, according to a report by Reuters.

Lion Air is one of Boeing’s largest customers around the globe and in April it penned a firm order to purchase 50 Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft with a list price of $6.24 billion while it has an order for 261 MAX series aircraft until 2035, Reuters said.

On October this year, a Lion Air 737 MAX 8 aircraft crashed into the sea killing 189 passengers and crew shortly after taking off from Jakarta Soekarno–Hatta International Airport, as it was heading for Pangkal Pinang in the Bangka Belitung Islands.

Indonesia’s transport and safety committee is reportedly due to announce next week the preliminary results of an investigation into the crash.
