TUI Group, the world’s largest tourism business, is celebrating the delivery of the operator’s first Boeing 737-8 MAX 8 (OO-MAX). TUI Airlines (Belgium) is the TUI Group operator of the new type.

The 737 MAX delivers the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market by incorporating the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, the Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, and other improvements. The efficiency gains have helped make the MAX the fastest selling airplane in Boeing history with more than 4,300 orders to date from 92 customers worldwide.

TUI Group has 51 additional orders of the 737 MAX 8 and four 787 Dreamliners. The Group also has 18 unfilled orders for the 737 MAX 10 and was the first European operator to select the latest and largest member of the 737 MAX family of airplanes.

The pictured OO-MAX was officially handed over on January 29, 2018. OO-MAX went into revenue service on February 5, 2018 between Brussels and Tenerife Sur (TFS).
