Boeing Co said on Wednesday it had won orders and commitments from China for 250 narrowbody 737 aircraft and 50 widebody aircraft, valued at about $38 billion at list prices. The major order, announced as Chinese President Xi Jinping toured Boeing’s Everett, Washington, factory, includes some planes that were
previously ordered but for which the buyers had not yet been identified. Boeing declined to say how many of the planes had been previously ordered, and how that would affect the actual value of the deal. Earlier on Wednesday, China’s ICBC Financial Leasing Co, a unit of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China 601398.SS, separately confirmed it will buy 30 of Boeing’s 737-800 jets, worth $2.88 billion at list prices.
