Boeing and WestJet celebrated the 100>th Next-Generation 737 to join the Calgary-based airline’s fleet Friday.
WestJet began in 1996 with three Boeing 737-200s serving five cities and has grown into Canada’s largest low-fare airline serving 81 destinations across Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.
With today’s delivery of a Boeing 737-800, WestJet’s fleet now consists of 100 airplanes – all Boeing Next-Generation 737s.
The Next-Generation 737 is the most fuel-efficient and reliable single-aisle airplane today.
The airplane provides added value to airlines such as WestJet by delivering reliability, simplicity and reduced operating and maintenance costs. (Source Boeing)
