The Air Transport Association of Canada has posted the latest Air Transport Cost Calculator for 2017, which breaks down the cost of flying a new Boeing 737-800 jetliner between Toronto and Montreal.
The calculator will be published this fall, the organization said.
“Boeing is looking to add more capacity and improve service on a smaller plane,” said Robert LeBoeuf, president and CEO of the association.
The association’s annual report released this year showed the average new 737-700 jetliner cost $18.8 million, down $6.8 from 2016. “
So with the 737 and the new 737 MAX, we’ll be able to take on the Boeing 737 MAX.”
The association’s annual report released this year showed the average new 737-700 jetliner cost $18.8 million, down $6.8 from 2016.
The cost of a new 737MAX rose by $6,000 from 2016 to 2017.
The association added that the price of a 737MAX has been dropping for years, even as it has increased in size and capability.
The most recent model, the 737 MAX 8, retailed for $28.9 million in 2016, up $6 million from $28 million in 2015.
“Boengs 737 MAX is the most expensive airplane we have ever analyzed,” said LeBoueuf.
“The 737 MAX 9 is the cheapest, with the highest capacity, and that’s the reason the association decided to update their cost calculator.”
