Samoa Airways is to replace its existing 737-800 aircraft with a new Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft.
The carrier is set to become the first airline in the South Pacific Region including New Zealand and Australia to operate the new Boeing 737 MAX 9, which will be leased from Air Lease Corporation.
Scheduled for delivery in late March, the aircraft, which will be delivered direct from Boeing in Seattle Washington, will replace the carrier’s existing 737-800.
The airplane will feature the new Boeing Sky Interior, highlighted by modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting that enhances the sense of spaciousness and larger overhead stowage bins.
The new aircraft will be configured with 16 Business Class seats and 173 seats in Economy Class, and will operate between Apia, Auckland, Sydney and Brisbane.
