SpiceJet orders 10 Boeing 737s

SpiceJet, a private airline in India, has ordered five Next Generation 737-800s and five 737-900ERs from The Boeing Co., Boeing announced Monday.
The order is worth more than $700 million at list prices, Chicago-based Boeing said in a press release.
SpiceJet began service with three leased 737-800s in May 2005. The airline ordered the 10 aircraft by converting 10 options from an order that SpiceJet originally made in February 2005.
The SpiceJet aircraft are scheduled for delivery beginning in late 2007.
