Nigerian airline Air Peace ordered ten Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, the manufacturer announced on September 13, 2018. The deal could be worth approximately $1.17 billion at list prices.
“Africa is a growing market for commercial airplanes and we are proud that airlines like Air Peace are selecting Boeing aircraft to be part of that growth,” Ihssane Mounir, Boeing’s senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing is quoted saying in a statement by the company.
As of August 2018, the airline operates a fleet of 18 aircraft, including two other variants of Boeing 737 (737-300 and 737-500). Earlier in 2018, the airline also received its first and second B777s as it is preparing to launch long-haul operations to London, Houston, Dubai, Sharjah, Guangzhou-China, Mumbai and Johannesburg. Of other manufacturer’s aircraft, Air Peace operates three Embraer ERJs (and has as much on order) and one Dornier 328-300.
