The newest agreement to come out of the 54th Paris Air Show was announced by Boeing and Air Algérie on the second day of the show.

The two aviation businesses announced on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, that Algeria’s flag airline will buy eight 737-9 MAX aircraft.

In order to fulfill the region’s rising cargo demand, the North African carrier signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for two 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCF), according to Boeing.

Yacine Benslimane, general manager of Air Algérie, stated that “this order will contribute to the development of the Air Algérie fleet.” This purchase is a part of Air Algérie’s plan to expand its fleet by purchasing additional aircraft.

A single-aisle fleet of more than 30 Boeing 737-500, 737-600, and 737-800 aircraft is flown by Air Algérie.

The 737-9’s range is 3,300 nautical miles, and it can carry 193 passengers in two classes.

“The 737-9 is ideally suited for Air Algérie’s regional network, providing it with additional capacity and flexibility to operate seamlessly with its existing 737 fleet,” said Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “In addition, the highly reliable and capable 737-800 Boeing Converted Freighters will enable Air Algerie to capture growing cargo opportunities, expanding beyond its passenger business.”

Since July 2022, more than 1,000 orders and pledges for Boeing’s new commercial aircraft have been placed by customers. This number includes more than 750 737 MAX aircraft, demonstrating the importance of the family’s adaptability and unity.

Boeing also revealed an order for eight 787 Dreamliners from China Airlines on the second day of the Paris Air Show.

Air Algérie placed a purchase order with Boeing on May 17, 2023, for eight B737-9 MAX aircraft that will begin arriving in 2027.

On June 1, 2023, the carrier made an order with Airbus for seven brand-new aircraft.

Two A350-1000s and five A330-900neos were part of the deal.
