AWAS has announced the lease of three new Boeing 737-800s to Norwegian Air Shuttle, the first of which will be delivered early in 2011.
“We are in the process of renewing our fleet, with the aim of having a 70 strong state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800 fleet by 2014,” said Bjørn Kjos CEO of Norwegian. “We have been working with AWAS for several years and they were an obvious choice for us for this deal. Their market insight and flexible solutions have proved the ideal match to our needs as an airline.”
“The initial delivery in this deal with Norwegian, early next year, will be the first of our Boeing Sky Interior 737-800s to enter the market. As the first lessor to offer this option, we have been delighted with the response of our customers, to date all of our placed pipeline 737-800s have selected the new Sky Interior,” said Ray Sisson, president and CEO of AWAS. “Norwegian’s decision to opt for the Sky Interior reflects their dedication to achieving the highest quality customer experience and we are delighted to support them in the realisation of this goal.”
