Austrian Airlines Expands Fleet with Additional Next-Generation
Vienna-based Lauda Air currently operates four 737-800s, all
equipped with performance-enhancing Blended Winglets.
"The Next-Generation 737 family has demonstrated its reliability
and efficiency worldwide," said Thomas Kleibl, Austrian Airlines
Group's chief financial officer. "The 737-800s in our fleet bring
our airline and our passengers a number of benefits."
Austrian Airlines Group, which consists of Austrian Airlines,
Lauda Air and Austrian Arrow, already has three other 737-800s on
"This additional order is a reaffirmation of the demonstrated
success of the 737s already operated by the Austrian Airlines
Group," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of European Sales,
Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737-800's unparalleled economics,
performance and leading-edge technology well support Austrian's
stated goals for growth and profitability."
The 737-800's Blended Winglets, which curve out and up from the
wingtips, boost performance, allowing the airplane to fly 240
kilometers (130 nautical miles) farther.
In all aspects, the 737-800 is environmentally friendly. The
entire family of Next-Generation 737 airplanes meets current
international emissions limits for hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide,
smoke and nitrogen oxides. All Boeing 737s manufactured today are
also quieter than the noise limits required by the international
standards established for 2006.
