Boeing and Myanmar National Airlines celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first Next-Generation 737-800 leased from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing arm of GE.
The celebration also marked the first all-new Boeing airplane to be delivered to any Myanmar-based airline.
The airplane is the first to feature Myanmar National Airlines’ new livery and interior, and the airline plans to expand its network outside Myanmar with the introduction of its 737.
“Our new 737 will allow us to expand our network to international markets and offer an even better experience for our passengers,” said Myanmar National Airlines Chief Executive Officer Than Tun said in a statement.
Myanmar National Airlines, previously Myanma Airways, has the most extensive route network within Myanmar, serving more than 25 domestic locations, and is headquartered in Yangon.
Founded in 1948 as Union of Burma Airways, the flag carrier is also one of Asia’s pioneering airlines.
The 737-800 is the best-selling version of the highly successful Next-Generation 737 family, the most reliable and technologically advanced airplanes in the single-aisle market.
