SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing Co. on Monday said South Korea's Jeju Air has ordered five 737-800 aircraft.
The aircraft maker said the deal is worth $370 million at list prices, although carriers often negotiate discounts. The planes will be the first Boeing aircraft in Jeju's fleet.
''The 737-800 aircraft exactly matches our long-term growth requirements for our routes within Korea domestically and to Japan, China and other Asia Pacific regions,'' Jeju said in a prepared statement.
The single-aisle 737 is Boeing's best-selling passenger plane. The 737-800 version can seat up to 189 passengers.
Boeing shares rose 4 cents to $87.50 in after-hours trading. The stock fell 79 cents during the regular session.
