CHICAGO — The Boeing Co. said on Tuesday that Turkish Airlines plans to order 70 of its workhorse 737s.

The airline has committed to order 20 737-800s, a version of the plane Boeing is making now. Turkish also plans to buy 40 737 Max 8s and 10 737 Max 9s, which is a planned new version of the plane with new engines.
