JET AIRWAYS INDUCTS THE NEW BOEING 737 MAX
Full service Indian carrier Jet Airways has become the first airline in India to operate the new Boeing 737 MAX. The carrier took delivery of the first 737 MAX 8 in the third week of June this year and has ordered a total of 150 jets of the newest model of the Boeing 737, the world’s most popular jetliner. The Boeing 737 MAX developed in response to the Airbus A320neo, is powered by the CFM LEAP-1B engine and features technology improvements such as the dual advanced technology wing-tips, engine chevrons and some other features. These help to significantly improve fuel efficiency by up to 14 per cent. Jet Airways already operates India’s largest fleet of Boeing 737s with all three variants of the current generation, the 737-700, -800 and -900ER.
