Boeing Co. announced an order for 75 of its 737 single-aisle airliners with a list price of about $8 billion from Jet Airways India Ltd., ending a sales drought at the biennial Dubai Air Show, Bloomberg reported. The order, which was already on Boeing’s books with the buyer listed as undisclosed, is comprised entirely of re-engined Max8 variants, Mumbai-based Jet said at a press conference with Boeing at the Persian Gulf expo Monday.

The announcement created some momentum at the Dubai show, which on its first day Sunday saw only a single order for two Boeing 777 freighters from Etihad Airways PJSC.
