Bavaria International Aircraft Leasing
has taken delivery of the company's first Next-Generation 737-800. New Delhi, India-based Air
Sahara will operate the airplane.
Bavaria, based in Munich, Germany, has a variety of Boeing airplanes on lease to operators around the globe, including 11 737-300s, six
737-700s and five 717-200s. Bavaria will take delivery of a second 737-800 later this month.
"The 737 is the preferred jetliner among our leasing customers," said Karsten Sensen, chief executive officer of Bavaria. "The 737-800's
efficiency and reliability are attractive to airlines, and the airplane's residual value makes it an excellent investment."

one of the world's largest privately owned aircraft leasing firms.
