Aircraft lessor GE Capital Aviation Services has ordered 75 more 737 Max airplanes, Boeing said Wednesday.

This newest order for Boeing’s next generation narrowbody jetliner is valued at $8.25 billion at list prices.

It brings GECAS’ total 737 Max 8 orders to 170 airplanes, Boeing said, the largest Max order from an aircraft lessor.

Boeing said the GECAS order, placed in December, brings the Max order book to 3,419 airplanes, making the airplane the fastest selling in Boeing’s history.

About 70 percent of the Next Generation 737 and 737 Max is manufactured at Spirit AeroSystems in Wichita.
