Air Algérie has signed a deal with American aircraft manufacturer Boeing to acquire the 737-9, part of the 737 MAX family.
A deal includes eight MAX aircraft and is part of their plans to modernise their fleet and move to more efficient aircraft types.
Deliveries for the 737-9s are set to commence sometime in 2027 and will progressively be delivered from this point forward.
Given the continued backlog of brutal aircraft delivery slots paired with companies’ strategies, airlines are getting in now more than ever, especially with returned demand in the air travel sector following a bleak couple of years.
Air Algerie flies a fleet of 737NGs and ATR 72s for its short to medium-haul operations and also has Airbus A330-200s operating for its longer-haul operations. It currently has 51 aircraft in service, with 5 in storage.
