JET TO ORDER 100 AIRCRAFT
As per the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA), Jet Airways is expected to order a further 100 narrow-body aircraft in addition to the fleet of 75 Boeing 737 Max for which the airline had placed orders in 2015. “The existing order by Jet Airways for seventy five 737 MAX aircraft, which are scheduled for delivery between 2018 and 2023, will be used mostly for the replacement of older aircraft. At present, half of its narrow body fleet is aged nine years or older. Meanwhile, the new order for 100 aircraft is intended for expansion,” said CAPA in its outlook for the financial year 2018.
