New UIA Boeing 737-800 Shows Good Fuel Efficiency
The first three weeks of operations for the new Boeing 737-800, which joined the UIA fleet July 24, 2009, has shown tangible fuel savings.
Fuel saving per passenger was 14 per cent compared to the Boeing 737-400, 25 per cent over the Boeing 737-300 and as much as 34 per cent over Boeing 737-500 aircraft.
UIA continues to modernise its fleet. It is planning to take delivery of a second Boeing 737-800 in September, and two more new Boeing 737-800 airliners will be delivered to Ukraine in 2010. Thus, UIA will have four planes of this type.
