Moscow - On November 7, AZUR Air, the largest Russian charter operator, commissioned a Boeing 737-900ER. Thus, AZUR air became the first airline to operate a 737-900ER in Russia.

The airline plans to use its 737-900ER (VQ-BYX) on its medium-haul routes. The aircraft will carry out its first commercial flight on November 8 on the Moscow-Antalya route.

The aircraft made its first flight in 2007. It is configured to accommodate 215 passengers in a single-class layout. The cabin has 24 seats with increased legroom - 33% more than on board the Boeing 737-800. This will allow the airline to increase the offer of luxury seat service Azur Space.

A second aircraft of the same type is expected to join the Russian charter carrier's fleet soon. Ultimately, the company aims to offer cost-effective air travel for Russian travelers on a number of popular leisure routes thanks to its Boeing 737-900ERs.

Azur Air has an all-Boeing fleet including six Boeing 737-800, one Boeing 737-900ER, eight Boeing 757-200, seven Boeing 767-300ER, one Boeing 777-300ER.
