Mumbai: Jet Airways, who is India’s largest airliner by market share, today said it had inducted its first next generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
Jet Airways Chief Commercial Officer ‘Sudheer Raghavan’ stated that, “The Boeing 737 has been an essential part of our product offering in the past and we selected the next generation Boeing 737-800 because of its high degree of operational flexibility and economy.”
The latest Boeing 737-800 aircrafts, when compared to the airline’s fleet of Boeing 737s, are expected to provide a better economy due to lesser fuel burn.
