Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) has confirmed Air Europa (UX, Palma Son Sant Joan) has indeed ordered twenty B737 MAX 8 jets in a statement issued at the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow.

Though the Spanish carrier's president Juan Jose Hidalgo did announce the order back in April, it has continued to be attributed to an unidentified customer on Boeing's order book. The aircraft will be powered by CFM International Leap 1B motors with deliveries scheduled for 2021 and 2024.

The Spanish carrier operates twenty-one B737-800s with a further thirteen still on order from Boeing.
