Israel. We would like to thank Boeing and all the other partners for their outstanding work on EL AL's six new aircraft."
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 and will fit perfectly into EL AL's existing short and
medium-haul fleet of Next-Generation 737-700s and 737-800s.
EL AL's 737-900ER will be its first airplane to feature the new Boeing Sky
Interior. This interior is the latest in a series of enhancements for both
airlines and passengers. It introduces new LED lighting and curved architecture
that welcomes passengers onboard and creates a greater sense of spaciousness and
comfort in the cabin. The interior also features modern, sculpted sidewalls and
overhead bins that disappear into the ceiling, yet carry more bags.
"We share a proud history with EL AL, and are honored to once again play a
significant role in this all-Boeing carrier's fleet renewal," said Todd Nelp, vice president of Sales for Europe, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "EL AL has already
experienced the excellent reliability and operating economics of the
Next-Generation 737 family with its fleet of 737-700s and 737-800s. The
737-900ER will enable EL AL to greatly expand its operations across Europe, while offering its passengers the superior
passenger comfort of the Boeing Sky Interior."
