Their growing commitment to the 737 MAX reflects the strong market demand for this airplane around the world," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Global Sales & Marketing, The Boeing Company. "We're pleased that ALC is having success with the 737 MAX's capabilities and efficiencies which are critical traits lessors need in their portfolios."
