Next-Generation Boeing 737-800s. The airplanes will grow the Air
Algerie Next-Generation 737 fleet to 22 airplanes.

Algerie," said Air Algerie CEO, Abdelwahid Bouabdallah. "One advantage is that our pilots and
engineers are expertly trained and experienced with the airplane.
The 737-800 adds great value to our fleet because it is very
high-tech and reliable. Reduced operating and maintenance costs
mean our airplanes spend less time on the ground and more time in
the air making money."
