Air Senegal International takes delivery of Third Next-Generation Boeing 737-700

Travel News Asia 8 July 2005

Air Senegal International has expanded its capabilities with the delivery of the carrier's third Boeing Next-Generation 737-700. The new airplane is equipped with winglets, making it more fuel efficient and offering greater range.

"This first direct purchase of a Next-Generation 737 is clearly a milestone in our growth as an airline. We are excited about our future prospects and we will continue on our successful course," said Air Senegal International's CEO Mohamed Fattahi. "The operating efficiency, performance and durability of the 737 serves us well, and has allowed Air Senegal International to add new regional routes in West Africa and increased flights to Europe."

The latest 737-700 to join Air Senegal's fleet was purchased directly from Boeing with financing guarantees by the United States Ex-Im Bank. The airline currently has two 737-700s on lease, as well as a 737-500.

Air Senegal International was launched in early 2001 by Group Royal Air Maroc and the Senegalese government, which holds a 49% interest in the airline.
