Jet Airways inducts first of 150 Boeing 737 Max planes
The airline ordered 75 Max planes in 2015 at the Dubai air show, making it the largest deal in its over 25 years history at that time.
The new single-aisle fuel efficient aircraft was delivered to the airline in the presence of chairman Naresh Goyal and other senior executives at the Boeing's Washington- based Renton facility last evening.
"The new 737 Max is a critical element to our future growth strategy and we are proud to become the first domestic airline to induct this brand new airplane," Goyal was quoted as saying in a statement.
"The 737 has been the backbone of our dynamic fleet for many years and we are excited to leverage the superior capabilities of the new 737 Max. The improved economics and efficiency as well as features will enable us to strengthen our market position," he added.
