NEW YORK — Boeing won a contract to supply 75 single-aisle 737 Max 8 planes to General Electric’s airplane leasing arm worth $8.25 billion at current listed prices, the companies announced Wednesday.

Booked in December, the order increases GE Capital Aviation Services’ backlog of the popular Boeing model to 170 planes.
