Boeing (NYSE:BA) secured its first new order for the 737 MAX since November on Tuesday, announcing an order from Polish charter airline Enter Air for two aircraft, with an option for two additional jets.

A two-plane order in normal times wouldn't make for much of a headline, but given the troubles the 737 MAX has encountered, any new order is noteworthy. The plane has been grounded since March 2019 after a pair of fatal accidents, and Boeing has endured a large number of cancellations in recent months as airlines and leasing firms adjust delivery schedules due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enter Air is Poland's largest charter carrier and to date has operated an all-Boeing fleet. Assuming the options are exercised, Enter Air would operate ten 737 MAX planes to go along with 22 737-NGs.

The new order won't do much to solve Boeing's issues, which include more than 400 planes built but not yet delivered due to the grounding. But it is a symbolic win for the aerospace manufacturer, which has been forced to cut back production of the 737 MAX and other aircraft due to the pandemic, and is readying a second round of job cuts.
