The new single-aisle fuel efficient aircraft was delivered to the airline in the presence of chairman Naresh Goyal and other senior executives at the Boeing's Washington-based Renton facility last evening.
The airline ordered 75 Max planes in 2015 at the Dubai air show, making it the largest deal in its over 25 years history at that time.
Again in this March, the carrier, in which Gulf airline Etihad holds 24 per cent stake, placed another order for 75 more 737 Max aircraft, taking its total order to 150.
"The 737 has been the backbone of our dynamic fleet for many years and we are excited to leverage the superior capabilities of the new 737 Max. The improved economics and efficiency as well as features will enable us to strengthen our market position," he added.
