egtmedia59Skymark Airlines on Monday announced it would buy four of Boeing’s 737 MAX planes, the first Japanese airline to choose the U.S. firm’s new mid-range plane.

“It’s a commitment to a minimum of four firm orders and we’re still in discussions on how the transition of the whole fleet will go,” John Wojick, vice president of global sales for Boeing, told reporters at the Paris Air Show.

Skymark currently has 30 of the U.S. firm’s mid-range 737 planes, and will have five more of those by next year. It then intends to gradually renew its entire fleet with the newer 737 MAX aircraft, which has yet to come into service.

At catalogue prices, Skymark’s order for four planes announced on Monday is worth $402 million.

The air show just north of Paris kicked off on Monday, with Boeing and Airbus announcing a slew of orders as they battle for supremacy at the major event.
