A deal for one hundred 737 MAX airplanes has been signed between Boeing Company (BA) and Vietnam’s first privately owned airline, VietJet Air, as the latter seeks to respond to rising demand on high-dense local routes and popular routes throughout Asia. Estimated at approximately $13 billion at list prices, the provisional order was inked at the Farnborough International Public Airshow in England.

Boeing shares closed higher for a fifth consecutive trading session in New York on Wednesday. The stock went up 0.94% ($3.35) to $360.23, after touching an intraday high at $361.86, or a price level not seen since June 14th ($367.64).

Shares of Boeing Company have surged 22.15% so far in 2018 compared with a 5.31% gain for the underlying index, S&P 500 (SPX).

80 of the jets ordered are of the 737 MAX 10 version, while 20 are of the 737 MAX 8 model.

Once the deal is finalized, VietJet Air is to become the largest MAX 10 customer in Asia. The airline expects to take deliveries of the passenger jets between 2022 and 2025.

“The growth is incredibly strong in Southeast Asia”, Kevin McAllister, Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO, was quoted as saying by Reuters. “VietJet is a major player there”, he added.
