Scat has long operated the Boeing Next-Generation 737. With the new 737 MAX, Scat will be able to achieve a further double-digit improvement in fuel efficiency and environmental performance. Scat will also be the first in Central Asia to fly the MAX.

Last year Scat celebrated its 20th anniversary and it is very symbolic that we are entering a year of adulthood with a purchase of the newest aircraft models. We are confident that the acquisition of Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets will not only raise the level of customer service in our airline, but will also give a new momentum to the development of the aviation industry in Kazakhstan, said Vladimir Denisov, president of Scat Airlines.

Scat has ordered six Boeing 737 MAX 8s, valued at $674 million at list prices. The deal includes purchase rights for five additional 737 MAX 8s.

The 737 MAX family is powered by the latest CFM International LEAP-1B engines.
