Turkish Airlines (Istanbul) and Boeing (Chicago, Seattle, Wichita and Charleston) have finalized an order for 20 Next-Generation 737 airplanes. The order includes 10 737-800s and 10 737-900 ER (Extended Range) airplanes. The 737-900 ER will be the latest 737 family member to join the Turkish Airlines fleet. Turkish Airlines currently operates a fleet of 66 Boeing airplanes, including 58 Next-Generation 737s. The order was posted previously to Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries Web site as an unidentified customer.
All of the new Turkish Airlines’ Next-Generation 737 airplanes will be fitted with the latest 737 Boeing Sky Interior. Based on the cabin design of the 787 Dreamliner, the all-new Sky Interior features soft blue overhead lighting, contemporary sculpted sidewalls and window reveals that draw passengers’ eyes to the airplane’s windows, giving passengers a greater connection to the flying experience. The new design offers larger, pivoting overhead stowage bins that add to the openness of the cabin. The bins give more passengers room to store carry-on luggage near their own seats, adding both extra convenience and extra legroom.
