Blue Air’s fleet plans, Boeing 737 Classics to be retired

To be replaced with new MAX 8s, likely by 2021

Currently, Blue Air operates 29 Boeing 737 aircraft, with series 737-300, 737-400, 737-500, 737-700 and 737-800 with a capacity between 120 and 189 seats.

In the summer of 2017, Blue Air announced a firm order of twelve Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 aircraft, that will enter the fleet starting in the second quarter of 2019.

Blue Air’s fleet was retrofitted with a more comfortable, better designed seat – Recaro. Passengers can now experience one of the lightest class of seats, designed for relaxation, with reclinable backrests.

Blue Air currently operates two Boeing 737-300s, six Boeing 737-400s and six Boeing 737-500s. The new MAX 8s will replace the Boeing 737 Classics. The new MAX 8s will be delivered in the 2019 – 2021 time frame. The -300s are likely to be the first type to be replaced since there are only two aircraft. The -300s and -400s are expected to be retired by 2020 and the -500s likely by 2021 when the last new aircraft is delivered.
