Boeing has delivered its 100th Next-Generation 737-900ER aircraft to Tajikistan’s Somon Air.
To date, the 737-900ER, which typically carries 180 passengers, has logged 414 orders from 16 customers. The entire 737NG family has won orders for more than 6,000 aircraft, with Boeing having so far delivered 3,800.
“Airlines around the world are recognising the superior performance and operating economics of the Next-Generation 737-900ER,” said Beverly Wyse, 737 Vice President & General Manager. “It offers the best seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane which is especially important with today’s high fuel prices.”
The Next-Generation 737-900ER is a short- to medium-range narrow-body jet which entered services with Indonesia’s Lion Air in April 2007.
This aircraft is Dushanbe-based Somon Air’s second 737-900ER, and comes equipped with the Boeing Sky Interior.
