Icelandair has taken delivery of its first
Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.
Icelandair placed an order for 16 737 MAXs in 2013, including
the MAX 8 and larger MAX 9 models. Both airplanes offer airlines a range
of up to 3,515 nautical miles (or 6,510 kilometers).
"The arrival of the new aircraft
represents a milestone, the start of the renewal of our fleet
which is an exciting undertaking for Icelandair," says BjŲrgůlfur
Jůhannsson, President and CEO Icelandair. "The MAX will be an
excellent addition to our fleet of Boeing 757's and 767's and
increase both flexibility and capacity for the growth of our
network, through added frequencies and new destinations."
The 737 MAX family is powered by CFM
International LEAP-1B engines.
"The 737 MAX will
complement Icelandair's trans-Atlantic operations, continuing to
seamlessly link points between North America and Europe," said
Monty Oliver, vice-president of Europe Sales, Boeing Commercial
Airplanes. "The incredible operating efficiencies of the 737 MAX
family will allow Icelandair to steadily and profitably grow its
network in the coming years as it introduces both MAX 8s and MAX
9s into its fleet."
