Travel News Asia Thursday, 31 August 2006

This week, Boeing confirmed a previously unidentified Air Sahara order for 10 Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes. Air Sahara placed the order in the first quarter of 2006 and was listed in the unidentified category on Boeings Orders and Deliveries website. Valued at more than $700 million at list prices, deliveries are scheduled to begin in mid 2009.

This order reflects our confidence both in the growth of Indias aviation market and Air Saharas modernization and expansion plans, said Alok Sharma, president of Air Sahara. The reliability and exceptional low-operating cost of the Next-Generation 737 supports Air Saharas mission to be Indias leading airline in terms of operational efficiency and customer service.

The 10 737s will be fitted with Blended Winglets, which will improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, increase range and reduce takeoff noise.

New Delhi-based Air Sahara flies to destinations throughout India and internationally with 134 daily flights.
