Norway’s Flyr has said it would lease six Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from Air Lease Corp, and deliveries are due to commence in early 2022. It also eyes an option to lease four more aircraft that would be delivered in 2023.
The airline aims to decrease fuel expenses by using the plane and thus, also reduce its carbon footprint.
“The decision to choose the latest generation of brand-new Boeing aircraft is in line with the authorities’ goal of a more sustainable development in aviation,” Flyr’s Chief Executive Officer Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid said in a statement.
“At the same time, we are happy to deliver on customers’ desire to fly the latest aircraft with the lowest emissions. The new aircraft type contributes on average with an emission saving of up to 14% compared to previous models.”
European regulators in January lifted here a 22-month ban on flights of the Boeing 737 MAX after a design and pilot training overhaul in the wake of crashes that killed 346 people earlier.
