737-800 aircraft exactly matches our long term growth requirements

other Asia Pacific regions.

initial support will bring great benefits for Jeju Air," said the
"The opportunity to establish a new customer relationship is
always an exciting one," said Stan Deal, vice president, Asia

future, and the superior economics, reliability and maintainability
of the Next-Generation 737-800 are important attributes in helping
Jeju Air successfully meet its growth plans."

737s, and has unfilled orders for more than 1,900 airplanes worth
more than $140 billion at current list prices.
