Southwest Airlines orders 34 more 737 MAX aircraft from Boeing.

Southwest Airlines said on Tuesday it had ordered 34 new Boeing Co 737 MAX 7 aircraft to receive in 2022, as the U.S. airline prepares for a vaccine-driven recovery in travel demand.

This brings the airline’s order for MAX 7 aircraft to 234 in total.

Southwest on Tuesday also tightened its second-quarter average core cash burn forecast to between $1 million and $2 million per day, compared with the previous range of $1 million to $3 million per day, Reuters reported.

The company said it continues to expect revenue to improve in June from a month earlier, driven by higher leisure passenger traffic.
