SCAT's first MAX 8 in a new 2018 livery

SCAT Airlines and Boeing celebrated the delivery of the Kazakhstan carrier’s first 737 MAX 8 airplane, one of six that the airline will operate as it expands its fleet and service.

SCAT has long operated the fuel-efficient and reliable Boeing Next-Generation 737. With the new 737 MAX, SCAT will be able to achieve a further double-digit improvement in fuel efficiency and environmental performance. And SCAT will be the first in Central Asia to fly the MAX.

“Last year SCAT celebrated its 20th anniversary and it is very symbolic that we are entering a year of adulthood with a purchase of the newest aircraft models. We are confident that the acquisition of Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets will not only raise the level of customer service in our airline, but will also give a new momentum to the development of the aviation industry in Kazakhstan”, said Vladimir Denisov, president of SCAT Airlines.

SCAT announced an order for six 737 MAX 8s at the 2017 Dubai Airshow. The agreement, valued at $674 million at list prices, includes purchase rights for five additional 737 MAX 8s.

SCAT Airlines’ first MAX 8 introduces a new livery

First MAX 8 introduces a new livery

SCAT Airlines (SCAT Air Company) is preparing to introduce a new livery with the pending delivery of its first Boeing 737-8 MAX 8. The pictured UP-B3720 (msn 61737) was rolled out of the paint shop at Renton Airport on March 16 sporting the new look.

The airline is talking about the new color scheme on its social media (translated):

“By Creating the concept of a new livery, we were inspired by the existing livery, but we wanted to stress the sophisticated fuselage of the Boeing 737 Max 8.

Writing the name of the company in blue color transmits the unique and modern positioning of the new graphics of the airline. The concept of the livery presents a new perception of the graphics of the aircraft using the corporate color scheme of SCAT in tandem with the color of the national flag.

Together these two colors form dynamic curves inspired by wind movement and freedom of flight. The power of the blue flowers is filled with a silver stripe.

Placing the logo on the tail turns it into a bold and modern super graphic, creating a dynamic visual rhythm of the connecting lines around the tail part of the plane. This reflects the role of the airline in the mission of connecting Kazakhstan with other countries.”
