Air Algerie chief executive Yacine Benslimane signed the contract with Boeing commercial sales regional director Laura Wolfe-Schulte. 

Wolf-Schulte says the purchase of the Max 9s is “strengthening a partnership” with the airline, one which has spanned six decades. 

Air Algerie has also revealed that is taking two Airbus A350-1000s and five A330-900s for long-haul modernisation.

All 737 Max jets are powered by CFM International Leap-1B engines.
