Boeing and SpiceJet today said the new carrier is ordering up to 20 Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes for domestic routes within India.

Details were provided during the Aero India 2005 air show. SpiceJet placed a firm order for ten airplanes, valued at $630 million at list prices, and has options for ten more. First delivery is scheduled for 2006.

Boeing`s willingness to work closely with us to meet all of our needs is an example of Boeing`s superb commitment to its customers, said SpiceJet Board Director Bhulo Kansagra. The superior operating economics of the Next-Generation 737 are especially important in light of continued rising fuels costs.

SpiceJet begins service in May with three leased Boeing 737-800s. Based in New Delhi, the airline is one of India `s newest start-up private carriers.

It is gratifying to partner with SpiceJet to help them achieve profitability and provide reliable and comfortable service , said Dinesh Keskar, vice president – Sales and president – Boeing Aircraft Trading, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The 737, especially the Next-Generation 737, has played an integral role in Indian aviation.

The Next-Generation 737s fly higher, faster, farther, and more quietly than comparable airplanes, while offering greater fuel efficiency. Overall the 737 airplane family is the world`s best-selling commercial jet airplane, with more than 5,500 ordered by 220 customers.
