Boeing and Sriwijaya Air Celebrate Double Delivery of Next-Generation 737-900ERs

First all-new aircraft delivery for Indonesian airline

SEATTLE, Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Sriwijaya Air today celebrated the delivery of two new Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range) airplanes. This is the first all-new airplane delivery for Sriwijaya Air, Indonesia’s third largest carrier.

“Today is a very important day for Sriwijaya Air, with the delivery of our first all-new airplanes,” said Chandra Lie, president of Sriwijaya Air. “These new 737-900ERs allow us to remain a leader in the market with superior economics and the ability to provide our customers with a world-class cabin experience.”

The Jakarta-based airline operates an all-Boeing fleet of 737 airplanes and offers flights to various Indonesian destinations and a select few international cities.

The new 737-900ERs feature Boeing’s innovative Sky Interior with modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, larger pivoting overhead stowage bins, and LED lighting that enhances the sense of spaciousness.

“We are proud to build upon our decade-long partnership with Sriwijaya Air with this double delivery of their first all-new airplanes,” said Dinesh Keskar, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “With market-leading fuel efficiency and reliability, and the passenger-pleasing Boeing Sky Interior, these new 737-900ERs strengthen Sriwijaya Air’s current fleet of 737s, with additional range, capability and comfort.”

The Boeing 737-900ER is the newest member of the Next-Generation 737 airplane family. It has the highest capacity and lowest seat-mile cost of Boeing’s single-aisle family.
