Kazakhstan's Scat Airlines has taken delivery of
its first Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, one of six that the airline
will operate as it expands its fleet and service.
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
The 737 MAX family is powered by the latest CFM
International LEAP-1B engines.
