China Sourthern Signs For 55 737s

Mon Aug 20, 2007 10:41 pm

A purchase agreement. Not sure whether this is new or part of a previous order.

Quote:
The Chinese airline (ZNH.N: Quote, Profile, Research) said in a statement it had made a long-term purchasing agreement with the U.S. plane maker on Monday to buy 55 B737-700 and B737-800 planes, without offering a breakdown of aircraft types.

It was not clear if the 55 planes, to be delivered between May 2011 and October 2013, were part of an earlier purchase agreement or represented new orders.

I believe this would be the order from July 10th... When they ordered (25) 737-800's... They most likely finalized it and added (30) 737-700's.

Good news Boeing and the 737 program!

I went through Hamlet69's Orders thread, Part II, but couldn't find (or missed) any mention of it. AFAIK, there was a 80+70 (or 70+80) frame announcement by the Chinese government in 2005. Are these an allocation of those airframes, or an entirely new order. I can't find anything definitive. I remember the discussions we had here about the allocation of the 787s, but don't remember whether the Chinese government had finished up with the 737s.

Then again, this could be new. . . .

Quoting Lumberton (Reply 2):

China Southern in $4bn jet order

China Southern to Purchase Boeing, Airbus Jetliners

I would say it would be from this announcement and they are finalizing it.

They are also looking at (12) more 77F's.

Thanks for the links. I think you are correct.

This article talks about the 55 as though they all could be new!

Quote:
China Southern Airlines Co., the country's biggest carrier, said it agreed to buy 55 more Boeing planes to enlarge its fleet and replace old aircraft. . . .

China Southern has acquired 37 Boeing B737-800 planes, six Boeing B777F freighters and 20 Airbus A320 series planes in the last 12 months, it said.

Good news Boeing and the 737 program

The July 10 order was registered as UFO July 30
These 55 aircraft plus the 50 unfilled A320 series already registered by Airbus (were part of these not integrated in the 150 CASGC order, also registered, means 105 new aircrafts !! How could this be affected by the Chinese new registration freeze ??

I was just about to ask that myself but you beat me to it. Seems like a no brainer they'll be replaced, but where will they go? I sure hope DL picks them up.
There's nothing quite like a trijet.

Boeing has released a response to China Southern's announcement of intent to buy 55 737s. Evidently it is not yet a firm order.
