WestJet has ordered 42 Boeing 737-10s with
options for an additional 22 jets.

The 737-10 will enable the Canadian carrier to
undertake an ambitious network expansion and help meet its
long-term sustainability goals.

As Boeing’s largest and most efficient
single-aisle jet, the 737-10 seats up to 230 passengers with a
range of 3,100 nautical miles.

Each 737-10 will reduce CO2 emissions by millions
of pounds per year compared to the airplanes it replaces, enabling
greater sustainability.

WestJet also has more than 15
737-8s in-service, carrying 178 passengers with a range up to
3,500 nautical miles.

“The 737-10 will be a game changer, with one of
the lowest costs per seat among mid-range aircraft. This will
foster our low-cost positioning and affordability for Canadians,”
said Alexis von Hoensbroech, WestJet Group CEO. “In addition, with its lower fuel consumption and reduced
emissions, the 737-10 will further improve the environmental
footprint of our fleet.”

Since launching its business with three 737s in
1996, WestJet has grown its Boeing fleet to more than 100
airplanes including the 737-8 and 787 Dreamliner.

Including the
737-10, the Calgary-based carrier has more than 60 firm orders for
the 737 MAX family.

“The 737-10 will provide WestJet with additional
capacity and unrivalled efficiency as the airline expands its
network of destinations across Canada and around the world,” said
Stan Deal, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We
are proud that WestJet sees the value of the 737 MAX family and is
adding the 737-10 to complement the 737-8 for outstanding
capability, flexibility and improved sustainability.”

Canada is home to one of Boeing’s largest international supply
bases with more than 550 suppliers and partners. The company currently
contributes approximately CA$5.3 billion in economic benefit to Canada
annually, supporting more than 20,000 jobs.

Boeing’s Winnipeg
fabrication site builds composite components for the 737 MAX and
other Boeing models.
