Qatar Airways has ordered 25 B737 MAXes 10 and taken options to purchase further 25 of the jets.
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker told media in Farnborough on July 18, 2022, that a previous Memorandum of Understanding, signed in January 2022, to buy up to 50 MAX 737 aircraft, comprising 25 orders and 25 options, had lapsed. However, the deal was revived on July 21, 2022, adding Boeing short-haul aircraft to Qatar’s fleet.
Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Stan Deal commented, „We are honored that Qatar Airways has decided to add Boeing’s single-aisle family to its fleet, depending our relationship with this world-class airline. The 737-10 is ideally suited for Qatar Airways’ regional network, and will provide the carrier with the most capable, most fuel-efficient airplane in its class.“
