WestJet unveiled its first Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, one of 50 scheduled for delivery in the next four years.
“We are proud to make history as the first Canadian airline to receive the Boeing 737 MAX,” said Ed Sims, WestJet executive vice president, Commercial. “The MAX’s design updates, including Boeing’s Advanced Technology winglets and the Boeing Sky Interior, will contribute to improvements in fuel efficiency and overall guest experience. We look forward to welcoming guests on board our sleek new aircraft along with our signature caring, people-driven service.”
“We worked closely with WestJet to make sure the 737 MAX raises the bar when it comes to efficiency, reliability and the passenger experience,” said Brad McMullen, Boeing’s vice president of Sales for the Americas. “This is a great airplane for a great customer, and we’re excited to see WestJet put the MAX into service.”
The aircraft, which has been at WestJet’s Calgary hangar since September 29 for inspections, training and test flights, is the first of 50 Boeing 737 Max scheduled to be delivered through 2027. The aircraft is expected to officially enter service on November 9, 2017, when it operates from Calgary to Toronto.
