The Boeing 737 MAX  (Boeing Company) will start flying this week: passengers on the Novosibirsk to Moscow and Chita routes will be the first to enjoy flying on the new airliner in the S7 Airlines fleet.

The airline already has 21 Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft in its fleet. The new Boeing 737 MAX, which we received from our partners ALC today, is even more comfortable, quieter and environmentally friendly than its predecessor. We are proud that our passengers will be the first in Russia to experience the comfort and convenience of flying on these new generation airliners,” said Vadim Khlebanov, General Director of Globus Airline.

The Boeing 737-8 MAX joined the fleet of Globus Airline (which flies under the S7 brand) directly from the manufacturer’s factory in Seattle, and is supplied to the airline by the Air Lease Corporation under a lease agreement.

“ALC is pleased to be involved in the supply of the first Boeing 737 MAX in Russia to our long-term client S7 Airlines,” said Alex Khatibi, the acting Vice President of Air Lease Corporation (ALC is an American aircraft leasing company founded in 2010) “The new Boeing 737 MAX will enable S7 Airlines to strengthen its position as a competitive Russian airline, with a fleet made up of the most up-to-date and efficient aircraft.”

The new Boeing 737 MAX is the first of 11 such aircraft ordered by S7 Airlines. These will be delivered by 2020.
