Boeing today celebrated a special program milestone with the delivery of the 6,000th 737. It was delivered to International Lease Finance Corp (ILFC) which will lease the 737 to Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA.
"It is exciting to deliver our 6,000th 737 to ILFC and Norwegian Air Shuttle, and we thank them for being among the hundreds of airlines, operators and leasing companies who have made the 737 the world's most popular jet airliner," said Mark Jenkins, vice president and general manager, 737 Airplane Programs. To date, unfilled orders for the Next-Generation 737 exceed 2200 airplanes valued at approximately $163 billion at list prices.
„ILFC's very first Boeing delivery was a 737 and since then we've taken delivery of more than 400 of this outstanding model, re-ordering incremental airplanes dozens of times," said Steven F. Udvar-Hazy, ILFC chairman and chief executive officer.
