GOL TAKES DELIVERY OF BOEING’S 100TH 737

Boeing has delivered the 100th 737 outfitted with the Boeing Sky Interior to GOL Airlines – the world’s third largest low-cost 737 airline. The airplane, a Next-Generation 737-800, was also delivered with the certified performance improvement engines, marking the first airline in Latin America to receive the improved engines.

The new CFM56-7BE engine configuration, which is now standard on all production 737s, is an improved design that includes a high and low pressure turbine modification. Coupled with drag reduction improvements that Boeing started phasing into 737 production earlier this year, it will result in lower fuel consumption and maintenance cost savings.

Boeing has improved fuel efficiency of the Next-Generation 737 by 4 to 6 percent since the first airplane was delivered in 1998. This outcome is the result of continuous investment in the 737 family, including the latest Performance Improvement Package, with specific results dependent on customer configuration.

The Boeing Sky Interior introduces new lighting and curving architecture that create a distinctive entry way. Passengers enjoy a greater sense of spaciousness in the cabin in an environment simulated by light-emitting diode (LED) lighting. The new interior also features decorative sculpted sidewalls, newly improved and expanded pivot stowage bins.
