MAX order for Comair
Thursday, 20 March 2014
Comair has announced an order for eight Boeing 737 MAX 8s, making it the first airline in Africa to order the new Boeing technology.

Comair ceo, Erik Venter comments, “It’s extremely exciting to be taking on new technology that is not yet seen in Africa.”

The aircraft are scheduled for delivery between 2019 and 2021 and will support Comair’s future fleet renewal. The airline currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of 25 Classic and Next-Generation 737s on its kulula.com and British Airways brands.

Scheduled for production in 2017, the 737 MAX is the most technologically advanced 737 variation designed by Boeing to date. The aircraft builds on the efficiency, economics and reliability of the 737 range and boasts a fuel performance which is 14% more efficient than its predecessors. It can also carry 12 more passengers.

The aircraft’s LEAP-1B engine, designed by CFM, ensures double-digit fuel efficiency and allows for eight percent lower operating costs.

“This R9-billion investment in Comair’s fleet upgrade is fundamental to our business strategy of consistently improving customer service and value, while ensuring a sustainable airline. Our decision to make this investment was not taken lightly and is a critical component in managing our exposure to the volatile fuel price and thus minimising the impact of the fuel price on airfares,” Erik concludes.
