AeroSvit Ukrainian Airlines this past week celebrated delivery of their first Boeing 737-800 (UR-AAN).

The new jet will join the Kiev-based carrier’s fleet of 13 older 737s, with seven more Next Generation -800s and four -900ERs due over the coming years. All will be fitted with the Dreamliner-inspired Boeing Sky Interior, featuring larger overhead bins, improved lighting, larger windows and a number of other passenger cabin improvements.

“Delivery of the first Next Generation 737 out of 11 airplanes that we have arranged to deliver marks the beginning of our airline’s narrow body fleet renewal,” said Gregory Gurtovoy, Chairman of Supervisory Board of AeroSvit Airlines, in a statement. “Execution of this large scale program will help Aerosvit to increase our operating efficiency and offer passengers unprecedented comfort levels provided by the Boeing Sky Interior that will be introduced for the first time in Ukraine.”

“Boeing is delighted to deliver Aerosvit’s first Next-Generation 737-800,” said Marty Bentrott, vice president of Sales for Ukraine, Russia, Central Asia and Middle East for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, in a statement. “We are honored to transfer this great airplane to our important customer and are confident that Aerosvit employees and passengers will enjoy its efficiency, reliability and comfort. We look forward to strengthening our partnership and supporting Aerosvit’s fleet growth and business expansion.”

AeroSvit operates a total of 80 international routes to 34 countries, using an assortment of Boeing 737s, Airbus A320s and Boeing 767-300ERs.
