: 26 April, 2007  (Company News)
The Boeing Company and New Delhi-based SpiceJet today announced that the airline has ordered 10 Next-Generation 737-800s. The order, valued at more than $700 million at list prices, follows previous orders in February 2005 and August 2006 for a total of 30 737s.
'The 737's reliability, low operating cost and passenger comfort provide unmatched value for both SpiceJet and its customers,' said SpiceJet board director Bhulo Kansagra. 'These aircraft are enabling us to add capacity on new and existing routes, and will continue to support SpiceJet's mission of being India's preferred low-cost airline.'

The 10 737s will be fitted with Blended Winglets, which will improve fuel efficiency, increase range, and reduce CO2 emissions and takeoff noise.

'The 737 continues to play an integral role in meeting the needs of India's rapidly growing aviation market, and SpiceJet's commitment to the Next-Generation 737 is a key example of the success of this airplane,' said Dinesh Keskar, vice president of Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. 'The 737-800, with its combination of 189 seat count, range, fuel efficiency, low maintenance, and overall economics, is the most efficient airplane in the market, serving a broad range of business models worldwide.'

SpiceJet, one of India's newest start-up private carriers, uses a single-class seating configuration on its short- and medium-haul flights within India. SpiceJet began service in May 2005 with three leased Boeing 737-800s, and today operates a fleet of 11 737-800s.
