Shenzhen Airlines orders 46 B737s

4 Jun 2015 by Clement Huang

Shenzhen Airlines has placed an order for 46 B737 aircraft, according to a statement by the airline’s parent company, Air China.
 
Air China said the order is worth US$4.3 billion at list prices and will be funded through Shenzhen Airlines’ existing operations, as well as bank loans.
 
Shenzhen Airlines expects to take delivery of its first new B737 in 2016, with all 46 aircraft to be delivered by 2020.
 
While it is primarily a domestic carrier, Shenzhen Airlines operates international services to Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand.
 
The carrier is also part of Star Alliance, and maintains close code sharing ties with Singapore Airlines, Eva Air, Asiana Airlines and Air China – all of which are alliance members too.
 
Shenzhen Airlines maintains a mixed fleet of narrowbody aircraft by both Airbus and Boeing. The new additions to its fleet could lead to the gradual retirement of five A319s and four B737-700s now in service.
