DUBAI, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Turkey's SunExpress THYAO.IS announced an order for an additional 10 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, on top of an existing 32 737 MAX 8 planes, the carrier said on Monday at the Dubai Air Show.

This is Boeing's second 737 MAX order after a deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines jet in March led to the worldwide grounding of the MAX fleet. British Airways-owner IAG signed a letter of intent for 200 737 MAX planes in June.
