China Southern Airlines Co Ltd, has placed an order for 30 Boeing 737 MAX family narrow-body aircraft for its subsidiary airline, XiamenAir. According to Boeing, the deal is worth approximately US$3.6 billion.

The order should see delivery take place between 2019 and 2022 and will comprise 20 of the 737 MAX 8 and 10 of the Max 10 variant. The aircraft will be used to increase efficiency and capacity and, according to Boeing, will be used with subsidiaries including Hebei Airlines and Jiangxi Airlines.
At the Paris Airshow in July last year, XiamenAir signed a deal with Boeing to become one of the launch customer group for the 737 MAX 10, which is the largest of the 737 MAX narrow-body family of aircraft.

XiamenAir currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of over 160 aircraft, including 149 of the 737 variant, six 787-8s and six 787-9s. This current order is that of what was one from an undisclosed customer booked in 2017.
