Boeing today said AWAS, a Dublin-based airplane leasing company, has ordered 31 of its single-aisle 737-800 jets.
Boeing said the order was worth $2.3 billion at list prices. But based on price estimates by aircraft-valuation firm Avitas, the airplanes are worth about $1.4 billion after standard discounts.
Boeing spokesman Marc Birtel said the AWAS deal is a new order and brings the total for the year to 1,177. Of those 682 are 737s.
AWAS, which owns and manages 315 airplanes, hopes to buy more of the next-generation 737s as it continues to grow, said Franklin Pray, its president and chief executive.
