Smartavia aims to have 20 Boeing 737NG in its fleet by 2022

Arkhangelsk, Russia - The Russian regional airline operator Smartavia continues to actively expand and upgrade its fleet. Earlier this month, the carrier launched scheduled flights with its third Boeing 737-700.

Smartavia has an all-Boeing fleet comprising five Boeing 737-500, three 737-700 and one 737-800. During the summer season, the company will add another three Boeing 737-800 to its existing fleet.

The Russian carrier plans to remove its five older Boeing 737-500 from the fleet next year and operate 20 Boeing 737NG by 2022.

The inclusion of new planes in the fleet has a positive effect on the performance of the airline. In the first four months of the year, the airline remarkably increased its seating capacity and seat occupancy.

Samrtavia carried out its first flight with the third Boeing 737-700 on June 4 from Arkhangelsk to Domodedovo. Like the first two 737-700, the aircraft is designed to accommodate 146 passengers in an all-Economy coach.

The Boeing 737-700 registered VQ-BBI was produced in 2006 and operated by Aeromexico before joining Smartavia.
