Flyr has made this announcement:
Flyr is taking a new and important step towards a more sustainable operation by phasing in the very latest aircraft technology with the lowest carbon footprint and fuel costs. On average, the Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 emits up to 14 percent less emissions than previous models.
The company has signed a letter of intent with Air Lease Corporation (ALC) for six brand-new Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 aircraft.
The aircraft will be delivered directly from the Boeing factory to Flyr during the first half of 2022. There is also an option in the agreement for four more aircraft with delivery in 2023.
Sustainability is an essential part of Flyr’s strategy. Always choosing the most climate-friendly solutions is crucial. So is the company’s approach to employees and unions.
As a newly established airline, Flyr is the only airline in Norway that pays for 100% of its emissions under the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS), in contrast to other domestic airlines that receive large exemptions in the form of free allocation of emission allowances.
Unions positive about new aircraft
Both Flyr Cabin Association and Flyr Pilot Association are positive about the company’s choice of new aircraft type.
Aircraft manufacturer Boeing and the leasing company Air Lease Corporation (ALC) are pleased about Flyr’s decision to transition to the most environmentally friendly option.
The plan is that the first aircraft will arrive in early 2022 and arrive continuously towards the summer.
