Lion Air Roars With Boeing Aircraft Order

First of 60 Next Generation 737s to be Delivered to Indonesian Operator in Early 2007 after Final Flight Tests


(8/19/2006)



A troupe of Indonesian dancers parading yellow banners were on hand in July 2006 in Seattle for the rollout of the first Boeing 737-900-E-R aircraft for Lion Air,, the first of 60 ordered by the Indonesian low-cost carrier.

Indonesian dancers escorted the newest member of the Next-Generation 737 airplane family along the south shores of Lake Washington as employees and 737 supplier representatives, local and Indonesian government officials and Indonesian launch customer, Lion Air, looked on.

Longer and Larger

The latest model in the 737 family, the Boeing 737-900-E-R can carry 215 passengers as fare a 3,700 miles.

"This is a wonderful day for the Boeing team and 737 customers. The capability and value of the world's most successful jet family continues to grow with the new 737-900ER," said Mark Jenkins, vice president and general manager of 737 Airplane Production. "We are confident that the airplane's unprecedented economic advantages and industry-leading reliability will enable our customers to be even more successful. That's the hallmark of the 737."

Boeing launched the 737-900ER in July 2005 when Jakarta-based Lion Air announced an order for 30 737-900ERs.Lion Air also exercised purchase rights for 30 additional 737-900ERs in June 2006. In addition to Lion Air, the 737-900ER has been ordered by Continental Airlines, GE Commercial Aviation Services (GECAS) and Sky Airlines. Futura International Airways and Excel Airways will begin operating 737-900ERs on lease from GECAS in 2008.

Delivery to Indonesia in Early 2007

The first 737-900ER will be delivered to Lion Air in the first half of 2007, following a five-month flight test program.

"The induction of the 737-900ER into our fleet will give Lion Air the competitive advantage both in cost savings and service," said Rusdi Kirana, president-director of Lion Air. "We are proud to be the only airline in Southeast Asia that will operate the 737-900ER, which will support our strategic plan to expand our routes and add new destinations within our growing market."

The 737-900ER is the same size as the 737-900, but can carry 26 additional passengers in a one-class configuration. At 138 ft., 2 in. long, the twin-engine jet incorporates a new pair of exit doors and a flat rear-pressure bulkhead that allows a maximum capacity of 215 passengers in a single-class layout.

Aerodynamic and structural design changes, including strengthened wings, a two-position tailskid, enhancements to the leading and trailing-edge flap systems, and optional Blended Winglets and auxiliary fuel tanks, will allow the 737-900ER to accommodate higher takeoff weights and increase its range to 3,200 nautical miles (5,900 km).

The 737-900ER will have substantial economic advantages over competing models including 9 percent lower operating costs per trip and 7 percent lower operating costs per seat than the A321 -- which is more than 10,000 pounds (4,536 kg) heavier.
