Jakarta-based Lion Air has taken delivery of the airline's 10th Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range) airplane. The airplane will be used by the airline to expand its service with new destinations throughout South and Southeast Asia.

The airline's 737-900ERs are equipped with performance-enhancing Blended Winglets, which improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions by up to 4%.

Boeing launched the 737-900ER program in July 2005 when Lion Air announced the initial order for 30 of the newest 737 model. The airline received the world's first 737-900ER in April 2007 and has ordered a mammoth total of 178 737-900ERs.

Lion Air, which operates an all-Boeing fleet and is one of the largest low-cost airlines in Asia, serves nearly 1 million passengers per month. The airline began operations in June 2000.
