JetAirways greets B737 MAX

The first Boeing B737 MAX for Indian international carrier JetAirways has been inducted into the fleet, carrying on a tradition which has seen the B737 series form the backbone of the airline’s operations since it began in 1994.

CEO Vinay Dube said: “The arrival of our B737 MAX is a proud moment that marks the start of an exciting new chapter for our airline and Indian aviation as a critical part of our future strategy.”

The JetAirways aircraft features the Boeing Sky Interior with new sculpted sidewalls, anti-glare LED lighting, redesigned overhead storage bins and other enhancements to maximise passenger comfort.

It will offer a standard two-class configuration with 12 Première Class and 162 Economy Class seats with JetAirways’ in-flight entertainment system JetScreen, which offers more than 330hr of the latest entertainment on personal devices.

Seats in Première are equipped with in-built USB ports, laptop chargers and portable electronic device holders along with a 40in pitch and a recline ranging from 7in-10in to provide what the airline calls “an appropriate mix of productivity and comfort”.

Economy Class seats will have variable pitch ranging from 29in-31in, with a 5in recline and again with USB ports and portable electronic device holders.
