JAL Orders Six 767-300ER Blended Winglet Systems

Japanese Carrier Already Operates 737s With The Wingtip Devices

Tokyo-based Japan Airlines has ordered six Blended Winglet Systems (with options) for Boeing 767-300ER passenger aircraft.  Already an operator of Next-Generation 737 Blended Winglets, this is the first JAL order for 767-300ER Blended Winglets, according to a news release from Aviation Partners Boeing (APB).

"Blended Winglets will improve aerodynamic performance on Japan Airline's 767-300ERs, which helps achieve their company-wide commitment to reduce costs and greenhouse gases," says Troy Brekken, Aviation Partners Boeing director of sales & marketing.  "With Blended Winglets installed on their 767-300ERs, Japan Airlines will realize fuel savings of between 4% and 5%, as well as corresponding CO2 reductions for cleaner operations."

Blended Winglet technology installed on a Boeing 767-300ER/F can reduce fuel burn by up to 500,000 gallons per aircraft per year, while reducing carbon dioxide emissions by over 5,000 tons per year. Blended Winglets can also extend the range of a Boeing 767-300ER/F by as much as 320 nautical miles, or increase the payload of the aircraft by as much as 16,000 pounds.

Nearly 5,000 Blended Winglet Systems are now in service on Boeing 737s, 757s and 767s with more than 200 airlines worldwide.  Since certification in 2009, APB has taken orders (firm and options) for 485 Boeing 767-300ER/F Blended Winglet systems. APB estimates that Blended Winglets have saved airlines worldwide more than 3.6 billion gallons of jet fuel to-date.
