UIA received another Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft
The aircraft passed an official registration procedure in Ukraine and received the UR-PSZ registration number. The aircraft accommodates 186 passengers in two-class seating configuration. UIA expects to operate Boeing 737-800 NG across its medium-haul route network. The UR-PSZ is scheduled to start operating commercial flights in February 2018.
Produced in 2009, the UR-PSZ aircraft is leased from Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), one of the world’s largest lessors that came seventh by fleet size in 2017.
“Finally, we have received the UR-PSZ aircraft and, therefore, collected the whole UR-PS registration series alphabet. The new aircraft is fully reconfigured to comply with UIA standards, equipped with new Business Class and Economy Class seats, as well as new catering equipment, – noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Communications Director. – This year, we will keep enhancing and renewing our fleet, expanding our flight geography, and increasing frequencies on a number of routes. In 2018, we expect to set a record and carry as many as 8 million passengers.”
UIA operates 42 aircraft including 27 medium-haul Boeing 737 NG aircraft. Currently, UIA fleet’s average age amounts to 11.8 years.
