Boeing and Turkish Airlines have completed a deal for 20 next-gen 737 aircraft: 10 737-800s plus 10 737-900ERs. At list prices, the aircraft are worth a total of $1.6 billion. The sale was originally announced in early February.

Cabins aboard the new aircraft will be fitted with Boeing’s new Sky Interior design, which is based on the interiors which will be found on the 787 Dreamliner.

Boeing says the aircraft had already been accounted for in their online order book, but were assigned to an unidentified customer.

The new aircraft will join 61 assorted 737 types in the Turkish fleet, including 51 737-800s, seven 737-700s and four 737-400s.
