Spanish carrier Air Europa has converted purchase rights into orders for 16 Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes. The airplanes are valued at approximately $1 billion at list prices and will be delivered between 2010 and 2014. Air Europa will use these new airplanes on domestic routes within Spain, including the Balearic and Canary islands, as well as on European and North African routes.

Air Europa currently has 34 Boeing Next-Generation 737s on order. “The 737-800 is the ideal airplane for our short- and medium-haul routes, providing great performance. These additional 16 aircraft will replace other Boeing Next-Generation aircraft with the objective to remain one of the most modern airlines in Europe with airplanes that are less than 10 years old,” said Juan José Hidalgo, chairman of the Globalia Corporación Empresarial.

Air Europa, founded in 1986, is the air travel division of Globalia Corporación Empresarial. Air Europa's network includes most of the Spanish territory. Its continuous expansion process has led the company to establish new European destinations such as Paris, Milan, Rome, Prague, Budapest and Warsaw, as well as transatlantic destinations and China.

As part of an effort to provide more comfortable and global service to customers, the airline has also signed agreements with Air France, Alitalia, Conviasa, Continental Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, KLM, PGA Portugalia Airlines and Tunisair, among others.
