Ruili Airlines (Kunming, Yunnan) is expanding rapidly. The relatively new airline is planning to expand its small fleet with Boeing 737 MAX aircraft by the end of 2025. The fast-growing Chinese carrier will acquire 60 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft (believed to be a mixture of MAX 7, MAX 8 and MAX 9 models) from two leasing companies, AVIC International Leasing Company and Minsheng Financial Leasing Company, according to Zacks.
Ruili Airlines formally started passenger operations on May 18, 2014 between its Kunming (KMG) base in southern China and Mangshi (LUX).
As previously reported, Ruili Airlines is owned by the Yunnan Jingcheng Group.
Three aircraft, two Boeing 737-700s and the pictured 737-800 were delivered in order to commence operations in 2014. The current fleet is now five aircraft.
