New Delhi: Shares of Jet Airways on Wednesday rose as much as 3 per cent in morning trade on the bourses after the company said it had entered a pact for buying 75 B737 planes.

In a regulatory filing on Tuesday Jet Airways said it had entered an agreement with Boeing for buying 75 B-737 Max aircraft, as it looks to strengthen presence in the fast growing domestic aviation market.

Following the announcement, shares of the company opened on a bullish note at Rs 623, then gained further ground to touch an intra-day high of Rs 632.25, up 2.99 per cent over its previous closing price.

The airline has already placed order for 75 Boeing 737 Max aircraft and their delivery is expected to commence by July-August.

The full service carrier has a fleet of around 119 planes, comprising Boeing 777-300 ERs, Airbus A330-200/300, Next Generation Boeing 737s and ATR 72-500/600s.
