Boeing announced on Tuesday an order from Air Astana for 30 737 MAX planes worth $3.6 billion.

The agreement is a "firm" order and will be disclosed at a later time by the customer at a formal announcement in the carrier's home market, the spokesman said.

Kazakhstan carrier Air Astana issued a letter of intent to buy 30 Max jets for its new low-priced airline FlyAstan, Boeing said.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg discusses the mistakes made by Boeing with the 737 Max on the anniversary of the first crash ahead of his testimony before Congress. "We believe that the Max will provide a solid platform for the growth of FlyAstan throughout our region once the aircraft has successfully returned to service".

Boeing said it has also received a $1.2 billion order for 10 Max airliners from Turkish leisure airline SunExpress, in addition 32 previously ordered. USA regulators still need to sign off on the fix.

Stan Deal, who took over last month as head of Boeing's commercial aircraft after the previous chief was ousted, told a press conference on Saturday that there was still no date for the resumption of 737 Max flights.
