Boeing confirm order for 40 planes

A KLM Boeing 737-800 takes off from Manchester Airport.

A General Electric plane leasing unit has ordered 40 aircraft from aeroplane maker Boeing, a deal valued at 3.9 billion dollars (£2.4 billion) at list prices.

Boeing booked the order from GE Capital Aviation Services, the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric, last year. It had been listed as an unidentified buyer on Chicago-based Boeing's website.

The order consists of 40 737s. Half are 737 Max 8s, and half are next-generation 737-800s.

With the new order, the GE aircraft arm has ordered 638 aeroplanes directly from Boeing.
