Boeing And ILFC Announce Order For 33 Next-Generation 737-800s

Hong Kong Airlines Also Plans Fleet Expansion

International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), has finalized a firm order for 33 Next-Generation 737-800s with Boeing. The order, with a list-price value of more than $2.6 billion, is part of the company's initiative to modernize its fleet and increase the balance in its airplane portfolio.

"This 737 order will provide ILFC's airline customers with advanced, highly competitive airplanes that deliver the best reliability, superior operating economics and increased passenger comfort," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales & Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "These airplanes deliver the continuous improvements we are making to the Next-Generation 737. "

Today's operators fly 737s that are 5 percent more fuel efficient than the first Next-Generation 737s delivered in 1998 and additional improvements are on the way. Boeing's performance improvement package, now in certification, will boost fuel efficiency a further two percent through aerodynamic and engine changes. The performance improvements to the airframe and engine are expected to be in service between mid-2011 and early 2012.

Additionally, Boeing will deliver ILFC's new Next-Generation 737-800s with the all-new 737 Boeing Sky Interior. "This ILFC order is a reflection of our performance improvement initiatives and our goal to offer the best product in every segment we serve," Dailey said.

In a related story, Boeing said a statement it is "delighted" with Hong Kong Airlines’ intention to expand its fleet with the purchase of 38 Boeing airplanes, including six 777 Freighters, 30 787-9s and two 787-8 VIP airplanes.

"Boeing's family of technologically advanced, long-haul airplanes will enhance Hong Kong Airlines’ ability to match the demands of the different markets it serves, and connect its long-haul network to local sources of demand," the statement reads. "Boeing is working with Hong Kong Airlines to finalize the agreement, at which time it will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website."
