Boeing and Air Europa have celebrated the Spanish carrier’s 25th direct delivery of a Next-Generation 737-800.
Air Europa showcased the latest addition to its fleet at a special event at its base on the Spanish island of Mallorca.
“This is a very important day for Air Europa, since the arrival of a new aircraft is always a cause of joy.
“Our wager on Boeing has been unmistakable since the beginning and today I can assure that without a doubt, at Air Europa we placed a good bet depositing our trust in the American manufacturer,” said Juan Jose Hidalgo, president of Globalia, the parent company of Air Europa.
“Thanks to the effectiveness of Boeing aircrafts we have been able to reduce expenses, always keeping the environment in mind, resulting in an increase for 2013 not only in the number of flights, but also of customers, making us the leading Spanish airline.”
The Boeing 737-800 is one of the best-selling versions of the highly successful Next-Generation 737 family, the most technologically advanced airplanes in the single-aisle market.
The Next-Generation 737’s market success has been confirmed by investors who consistently rank it as the most preferred single-aisle airplane due to its wide market base, superior performance efficiency and lowest operating costs in its class.
The 737-800 forms the backbone of Air Europa’s short and medium-haul fleet with the Spanish carrier set to take delivery of another nine from Boeing.
