Myanmar National Airlines takes delivery of its first Boeing 737-800, painted in a new livery

Myanmar National Airlines (formerly Myanma Airways) (Yangon) and Boeing (Chicago, Seattle and Charleston) yesterday (June 11) celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first Next-Generation 737-800 leased from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing arm of GE. The celebration also marked the first all-new Boeing airplane to be delivered to any Myanmar-based airline.

The airplane is the first to feature Myanmar National Airlines’ new livery and interior, and the airline plans to expand its network outside Myanmar with the introduction of its 737.

“Our new 737 will allow us to expand our network to international markets and offer an even better experience for our passengers,” said Myanmar National Airlines CEO Than Tun. “Investing in new technology aircraft such as the 737 will ensure Myanmar National Airlines continues to be the pride of the country and positions us for future success.”

Republic Airways Holdings (Indianapolis) has now confirmed our earlier report. The holding company will acquire 10 Embraer ERJ 190-100 IGW aircraft (ERJ 190-100ARs) from US Airways. The first four (N961UW and N963UW have already left US) will enter service flying for its subsidiary Midwest Airlines (probably operated by Republic Airlines) in November and December. The other six will enter service in the first quarter of 2010 for its “branded operations” (believed to also include some flying for Frontier Airlines). Republic will apply $35 million it loaded to US Airways towards the purchase.
