The 737 MAX is flown by more than 40 airlines worldwide, and since late 2020, it has completed more than 720,000 revenue flights totaling more than 1.8 million flying hours. Bonza, based in Australia’s Sunshine Coast, has indicated a willingness to expanding its fleet by seven 737 MAX aircraft within its first year of operation. Subject to regulatory approval, the airline is working hard to start flights as early as late September. Additionally, the airline has asked residents to participate in a national social media campaign to help name its aircraft.
