Southwest Airlines on Wednesday became the first airline to order Boeing's new 737 MAX 7 airplane, the smallest model of the new fuel-efficient MAX family, the companies announced.
The Dallas, Texas-based carrier changed its existing order for 30 Boeing Next-Generation 737s to 30 737 MAX 7s, they said in a statement.
The first delivery is set for 2019.
The 737 MAX is a re-engined version of the single-aisle 737, the best-selling plane in aviation history.
