Enter Air (Warsaw) yesterday took delivery of its first Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 (SP-EXA).
The new type for the carrier departed last night from Boeing Field in Seattle bound for Warsaw via a stop in Keflavik, Iceland.
The airline also took the opportunity to modify its livery (top photo) with the new type versus what was planned (above).
The carrier mentioned the delivery on social media (translated from Polish):
The arrival of our Boeing 737 MAX 8 is planned for Tuesday, December 4 in the afternoon! It will land in Warsaw. On this occasion we have announced a photo contest for the best photo of its landing.
Enter Air has six permanent operational bases in Europe:
Frederic Chopin Airport in Warsaw,
Paris-Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport
and Manchester Airport.
Enter Air planes connect also other Polish cities, such as: Cracow, Gdańsk, Bydgoszcz and Łódź.

Enter Air, as part of Poland’s “100 Years of Independence” celebrations, has painted the pictured Boeing 737-8Q8 SP-ENX (msn 30627) in a “1918 – 2018” special livery featuring Merian Caldwell Cooper on the left side.
According to Wikipedia:
Merian Caldwell Cooper (October 24, 1893 – April 21, 1973) was an American aviator, United States Air Force and Polish Air Force officer, adventurer, screenwriter, film director, and producer. Cooper was the founder of the Kościuszko Squadron during the Polish–Soviet War and was a Soviet prisoner of war for a time. He was a notable movie producer, and got his start with film as part of the Explorers Club, traveling the world and documenting adventures. He was a member of the board of directors of Pan American Airways, but his love of film always took priority. During his film career, he worked for companies such as Pioneer Pictures, RKO Pictures, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. He is also credited as co-inventor of the Cinerama film projection process. Cooper’s most famous film was the 1933 movie King Kong. He was awarded an honorary Oscar for lifetime achievement in 1952 and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960.
