Boeing has delivered a Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 to Tianjin-based Okay Airways Company Ltd. The new airplane, which is the seventh 737 in Okay Airways' fleet, is under lease from AWAS (Ansett Worldwide Aviation Services).

This 737-800 is the first new-airplane delivery for Okay Airways and the first new-airplane delivery in four years for AWAS, an aircraft leasing company based in Dublin, Ireland.

"Okay Airways selected the Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 to provide the optimum in safety, reliability and economics," said Liu Jieyin, president of Okay Airways. "We believe that the Next-Generation 737-800 is the best airplane to meet passenger needs and generate profits for the company, while offering lower ticket prices and benefiting our customers."

Okay's 737-800 will be used primarily in passenger service, initially for routes such as Tianjin to Kunming, Changsha, Zhang Jiajie, Guilin, Hohhot, Taiyuan and Harbin, followed by other routes as the fleet expands.
