Jet Airways has ordered 75 Boeing 737 MAXs as the Indian carrier looks to the new aircraft to power its future growth.

The Mumbai-based carrier announced its first order for 75 MAX aircraft in 2015 as part of a strategy to refresh its fleet with the most modern and environmentally progressive airplanes.

The newest order adds 75 more MAXs to support the airline’s future expansion. Jet Airways is set to take direct delivery of its first MAX later this year.

“Our new order for the additional 75 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft will allow us to deliver a differentiated and world-class customer experience to our guests,” Jet Airways CEO Vinay Dube said.
