Plane maker Boeing received its first orders at the Dubai Airshow on Tuesday from two Algerian airlines. Air Algerie, Algeria’s national carrier placed an order for seven Boeing 737-800 jetliners, while Tassili Airlines ordered four 737 jetliners. Air Algerie already has a 737 fleet of 15 planes, and Abdelwahid Bouabdallah, its CEO, said that the order was “a natural progression” for the airline.
Although Boeing did not say the value of the deals, the planes usually sell for between $72.5 million and $81 million at list prices, reports the Associated Press.
