Another Boeing 737 for Enter Air while the first MAX 8 close to delivery
Warsaw - Enter Air, the largest Polish private airline, has added another Boeing 737-800 to its fleet. Currently, the carrier's fleet consists of nineteen aircraft of the same type.
The 11.5 years old Boeing 737-800, which is registered as SP-ESE, was previously operated by the bankrupt Danish carrier Primera Air. The aircraft has been leased from an undisclosed Irish lessor on the basis of five years operating leasing.
The Boeing 737-800s of the Polish budget carrier are configured to carry up to 189 passengers.
In 2017, Enter Air completed the replacement of the old aircraft in the fleet with newer ones. As part of its fleet renewal program, eight Boeing 737-400 were replaced by Boeing 737-800s.
The airline has also ordered six Boeing 737 MAX 8. The first two devices will arrive in the coming weeks. The company has signed an agreement with the German DVB Bank to finance the new next-gen single-aisles.
The first 737 MAX 8 is expected to enter service with Enter Air in December 2018, and the second in January 2019. The first device is already painted with the Enter's colors and prepared for test flights by the manufacturer.
Another Polish carrier, LOT Polish Airlines, has already received four Boeing 737 MAX 8 out of 12 on order. The delivery process for the flag carrier of the country was launched last year in December and would end by the end of 2019.
