Boeing has delivered the 100th 737 to feature the Sky Interior to GOL, the first upgraded 737-800 it has received featuring the CFM56-7BE engine.
"GOL continues to do everything possible to diminish fuel consumption and emissions, further reducing its operating costs, which are among the lowest in the sector," remarked Adalberto Bogsan, the airline’s technical vice-president.
The new CFM56-7BE engine, which is now standard on all production 737s, is an improved design that includes a high and low pressure turbine modification. Coupled with drag reduction improvements that Boeing started phasing into 737 production earlier this year, it will result in lower fuel consumption and maintenance cost savings.
