Boeing Launches New Longer-Range 737
07.18.2005, 07:06 PM

The Boeing Co. launched a new version of its narrow-body 737 jet on Monday, as it completed a 30-plane sales agreement with Lion Air, a low-cost Indonesian carrier.

The 737-900ER, formerly known as the 737-900X, is designed to carry more passengers and fly farther than existing models of the single-aisle plane.

Chicago-based Boeing said Lion Air's order, which included purchase rights for another 30 planes, was worth $3.9 billion at list prices, though airlines typically negotiate substantial discounts.

The new plane will be the same size as the current 737-900, but will carry an additional 26 passengers, boosting the maximum capacity to 215 in a single class.

Aerodynamic and structural design changes, including stronger wings and improvements to the leading- and trailing-edge flap systems, will increase the plane's range to roughly 3,680 miles, up from 3,160.

The first 737-900ER is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2007.

Boeing launches newest 737 model

The Boeing Co. has launched a new version of its popular 737 that flies farther and carries more passengers than previous models.




Lion Air, a low-cost carrier in Indonesia, placed a firm order for 30 new 737-900ERs and took an option on another 30 of the planes. The order is worth $3.9 billion at list prices, Boeing said in an announcement.

Boeing (NYSE: BA) said earlier this year that Lion intended to buy as many as 60 of the planes, known at the time as the 737-900X.

The first of the new planes is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2007, Boeing said.

The ER version of the plane is the same size as the standard 737-900, but the addition of an extra set of exit doors allows a carrier to increase capacity to 215 passengers from the previous 189. Depending on options, the planes can fly up to 3,200 nautical miles with heavier loads, the company said.

Boeing's Commercial Airplanes Division is based in Renton, near the factory where the 737 family is assembled.

Airlines May Switch To New 737 - Boeing
July 19, 2005

Boeing expects several existing customers for its narrow-body 737 jet to consider switching some orders to the just-launched stretch version of the plane, an executive said on Tuesday.

Boeing announced the launch of the new plane late on Monday with an order from Indonesian low-cost carrier Lion Air worth USD$3.9 billion at list prices. Lion had previously said it planned to buy up to 60 737s, but not the new version.

The 737-900ER increases the plane's top capacity by 26 passengers to 215. It also boosts the range of the existing 737-900 by 17 percent to 3,200 nautical miles -- enough to fly from New York to San Francisco nonstop.

"A significant number of customers who have purchased airplanes in the past year have substitution rights into the 900ER," Mike Delaney, chief project engineer for the 737 program, said.

"They'll make decisions as we proceed in the next several months... whether to exercise those rights," he added.

The new plane could be particularly appealing to other Asian airlines like Japan Air Lines and entrepreneur Richard Branson's low-cost Australian carrier Virgin Blue, he said.

Bank of America analyst Nick Fothergill said in a research note that he viewed the plane as a small positive for Boeing "that goes some way to filling a product gap (against the Airbus A321) and likely provides competitive seat mile costs."

I am happy that Lion air is choosing 737-900ER instead of Airbus, mainly because the 739ER has winglets on it and more importantly is we already have so many Airbus orders in ASEAN region!

Go lion air well done Boeing!

cheers

For some reason, the really huge winglets are mainly used on the 737-700s.

Boeing Launches New Higher Capacity, Longer Range 737
July 22, 2005



Boeing officially launched the 737-900ER (Extended Range) - the newest member of the company's Next-Generation 737 family - following the completion of a sales agreement for up to 60 of the airplanes from Lion Air.

The 737-900ER, formerly known as the 737-900X, will carry more passengers and fly farther, increasing the capability of the Next-Generation 737 airplane family, said Boeing. The 737-900ER is the same size as Boeing's 737-900, but, with the addition of a pair of exit doors and a flat rear pressure bulkhead, will carry 26 additional passengers, raising the maximum capacity from 189 to 215 in a single-class layout.

Aerodynamic and structural design changes, including strengthened wings, a two-position tailskid, enhancements to the leading and trailing edge flap systems, and optional blended winglets and auxiliary fuel tanks, will allow the 737-900ER to accommodate higher takeoff weights and increase its range to 3,200 nautical miles (5,900 km), making it comparable to the 737-800's range, said Boeing.

Powered by the CFM International CFM56-7B turbofan engines, the new derivative will have substantial economic advantages over competing models, according to Boeing, including 9% lower operating costs per trip and 7% lower operating costs per seat than the A321, which is more than 10,000 pounds (4,536 kg) heavier than the 737-900ER.

"The Next-Generation 737 is the most efficient single-aisle airplane family today, and we are thrilled to have Lion Air as the launch customer to increase the 737 family's capability with the additional range and seating of the 737-900ER," said Alan Mulally, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "In addition to the unprecedented economic advantages, the 737-900ER shares the same industry-leading reliability of the world's most successful airplane family."

Lion Air, Indonesia's "low-cost" carrier, originally announced its intent to order up to 60 737s earlier this year. The firm order announced by Boeing this month is for 30 of the new derivative airplanes, with purchase rights for 30 additional models. The order is worth $3.9 billion at list prices.

The first 737-900ER is scheduled for delivery in the first half of 2007.

To date, 86 airlines have placed orders for more than 2,700 Next-Generation 737s, said Boeing.

Boeing delivers Virgin Blue's 50th next-generation 737
Friday, 29 July 2005



The Boeing Company and Virgin Blue Airlines celebrated the delivery of the airline's 50th Next-Generation 737, sporting a special 'true blue' livery. The new jetliner, a 737-700, departs for its Australian home yesterday.

The sterling blue paint scheme, instead of the usual vivid red livery, will serve as a flying billboard for the airline's success in the Australian domestic market. The interior stowage bins also carry the names of all staff members, from founder Sir Richard Branson, and CEO Brett Godfrey, to ‘pit crew' ground staff, cabin crew and support services.

Brisbane, Queensland, based Virgin Blue is taking the 50th jetliner less than five years from start of Australian domestic service. The airline's stellar growth reached 40 percent in the year ending March 31, resulting in a profit after tax of $A138 million on revenues of $1.6 billion.

Email Distribution"Virgin Blue has charted its own path to achieve operational and economic success by offering low fares combined with exceptional service for its Australian and south Pacific customers," said Larry Dickenson, vice president, Sales – Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We have been proud to be a partner on this journey, and delighted to see the airline's tremendous success. Virgin Blue's recent win as Best Low Cost Carrier at the OAG Airline of the Year awards is positive proof that it has the right recipe."

The airline's fleet is a mix of 737-700s and 737-800s, running a route network stretching from Darwin in northern Australia , to Perth in the West, Hobart in the South as well as high-frequency East Coast services between Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Now 62.4 percent owned by the Patrick Corporation, Virgin Blue also runs international services from Australia to New Zealand under the Pacific Blue brand, and recently acquired the right to operate Polynesian Airlines, national carrier of Western Samoa.

The Next-Generation 737 family delivers high profitability, optimum efficiency and reliability, and is 10 years newer that its competition. It is the fastest-selling jetliner of all time and the class leader in dispatch reliability. Boeing has received orders for more than 2,700 Next-Generation 737s since launching the program in 1993, with unfilled orders for more than 980 planes.

10 August 2005


Turkish Airlines has exercised options for eight Boeing Next-Generation 737-800s. The airplanes are scheduled for delivery in 2008 and are worth an estimated $542 million at list prices. The options were part of an order placed by Turkish Airlines in 2004 for 15 Boeing 737s.

Moving forward on our growth strategy, we are looking to open new markets in Europe and Central Asia . The Next-Generation 737s' operational flexibility will play an integral part of that strategy," said Dr. Temel Kotil, President and CEO of Turkish Airlines.

Turkish Airlines is equipping its fleet with the right product to successfully manage the booming demand from both leisure and business travelers," said Aldo Basile, Sales director for Turkey , Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The Boeing Next-Generation 737 has proven its value to Turkish Airlines and will continue to do so in the future."

Boeing announces $1 billion in 737 orders

The Boeing Co. announced more than $1 billion in 737-800 orders Thursday: Pegasus Aviation Finance Co. ordered six jets and India-based Jet Airways confirmed its order of 10.

Jet Airways originally announced its $680 million order (at list prices) at the Paris Air Show in June. It also announced at the show its intent to order 10 777 airplanes. Jet currently flies 39 Boeing 737 airplanes of various types.

Boeing Commercial Airlines Group officials said this is the first direct purchase by San Francisco-based Pegasus Aviation. Its latest $400 million order will bring its 737 fleet to 30.

The 737 is assembled at Boeing's Renton facility.

The 737NG is Boeing’s latest family of single-aisle airliners, comprising the 737-600, 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900. The 737-600 is the smallest aircraft in the family and the 737-900 is the largest.

Although earlier Boeing 737 models have been flying for many years, the 737NG is essentially a new design, most notably featuring a new wing design and a modern ‘glass’ cockpit similar to the widebody Boeing 777. In the UK, 737NG’s are operated by easyJet & Astraeus (-700), and Ryanair & Excel Airways (-800).

The 737NG simulator is one of the newest and most advanced flight simulators in the world, with incredible daylight, dusk and night graphics. The simulator replicates the 737-700 and 737-800 as these are the two most popular variants, especially with UK and European airlines.
