Keeping up with its fleet modernization plan, Jet Airways recently received its fifth Boeing 737 MAX. Since the induction of the airline’s maiden 737MAX (registered as VT-JXA) on 28th June, 2018, another four have joined its fleet. The latest MAX – the airline’s fifth, with registration VT-JXE – is part of 11 MAX aircraft that Jet Airways will be inducting this fiscal year.
Another 220 MAX aircraft are expected to join the airline’s fleet over the course of the next decade, as it expands its footprint and refreshes its in-flight experience on the back of a completely modern and contemporary product. Jet Airways remains the first and only Indian carrier to operate these advanced single-aisle fuel-efficient aircraft in the Indian skies.
Like the 737NG, the 737MAX offers a two-class configuration of two variants. One comprising 12 Première and 162 seats in Economy, and another with 12 Premiere and 156 Economy class seats. The all-new MAX have been delighting guests on both domestic as well as international sectors including Aurangabad, Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mangalore, Mumbai, Patna, Goa, as well as Dhaka, Colombo and Dubai.
Since their induction, Jet Airways’ 737MAX fleet has already completed over 2500 hrs of flying with the airline, connecting over 165,000 guests via more than 1100 departures till date.
