Boeing Co won its first order for the grounded 737 MAX aircraft this year, after Poland’s Enter Air SA agreed to buy up to four variants of the jet, the U.S. planemaker said on Wednesday.

BOEING OFFERS SECOND LAYOFF PACKAGE TO EMPLOYEES

The jet’s recertification is still hanging in the balance more than a year after its worldwide grounding due to two fatal crashes, and the planemaker’s woes have been compounded by the coronavirus crisis hitting air travel.

Boeing’s customers have canceled more than 400 orders for the 737 MAX jets this year, the company said last week. Based on a tighter accounting standard, the 737 MAX order cancellations and conversions to other aircraft models now stand at 864.

The planemaker said on Wednesday that Enter Air placed a new order for two 737-8 aircraft with options for two more jets. When the purchase agreement is fully exercised, Enter Air’s 737 MAX fleet will rise to 10 aircraft, Boeing said.
