Big new 737 order is waiting in the wings

The launch customer for Boeing’s enlarged 737-900ER, Indonesia’s Lion Air, will more than double its order for the aircraft, a media report from Indonesia says.

Lion Air has orders for 60 of the 737s. It plans to raise that order to 122 at an Indonesia air show in December, a Chinese paper says.

People’s Daily attributed the report of the doubled order to a Lion Air executive.

Lion Air is a low-cost carrier that is attempting to secure a dominant position in Indonesia’s airline industry.

The 737-900ER is a longer range version of the 737 lineup’s largest aircraft.

Lion Air was the first airline to order the aircraft.
