BOEING AND TURKISH AIRLINES CONFIRM ORDER FOR 15 NEXT-GENERATION 737S

Turkish Airlines (THY) have announced the Istanbul-based carrier has exercised options for 15 Next-Generation 737s. The order, comprised of 10 737-800s and 5 737-900ERs, has an average list-price value of more than $1.2 billion. Boeing will deliver all of Turkish Airlines new Next-Generation 737s with the innovative Boeing Sky Interior. The new interior introduces larger overhead stowage bins with a new pivoting design that provides more open space in the cabin.

“Today’s 737 order is another important step in our partnership with Turkish Airlines,” said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The new Boeing Sky Interior, combined with the 737′s industry-leading reliability and superior operating efficiency, provides the perfect tool for Turkish Airlines to continue its successful network expansion.”

“These new Boeing 737 aircraft will help us to reach even more cities and build a truly global network,” said Turkish Airlines CEO, Dr. Temel Kotil. “We are very eager to have these new aircraft join the Turkish Airlines fleet—increasing efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort.”

Boeing has received orders from 14 customers for a total of 305 737-900ERs, the newest member of the 737 family. The higher capacity, longer-range derivative of the 737-900 was launched in July 2005. The 737-900ER offers 6 percent lower operating costs per trip and 4 percent lower operating costs per seat mile than competing models.
