Okay Airways has placed an order for six Boeing 737 MAX 8s and four 737-800s, and will convert five 737-800s from a previous order into 737-900ERs.
With the order conversion, Okay Airways will become the first airline in China to operate the 737-900ER.
“The 737 is the backbone of our fleet and has fuelled our growth with its proven reliability and efficiency,” explained Liu Weining, president, Okay Airways. “The addition of the new 737 MAX aeroplanes will help us explore new regional markets while strengthening our existing domestic routes.”
Okay Airways is headquartered in Beijing with its main hub at Tianjin Binhai International Airport. Its fleet includes 12 Boeing 737-800s and one Boeing 737-300 freighter, which serves 40 domestic destinations.
