Boeing and Myanmar National Airlines celebrated the delivery of the airline's first Next-Generation 737-800 leased from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing arm of GE. The celebration also marked the first all-new Boeing airplane to be delivered to any Myanmar-based airline.
The airplane is the first to feature Myanmar National Airlines' new livery and interior, and the airline plans to expand its network outside Myanmar with the introduction of its 737.
"Our new 737 will allow us to expand our network to international markets and offer an even better experience for our passengers," said Myanmar National Airlines CEO Than Tun. "Investing in new technology aircraft such as the 737 and 737 MAX will ensure Myanmar National Airlines continues to be the pride of the country and positions us for future success."
