Xiamen Airlines receives 100th Boeing aircraft for its fleet


China'S Xiamen Airlines, a SkyTeam member which operates an all-Boeing fleet, has taken delivery of its 100th plane - a brand new 737-800 aircraft - at Boeing's base in Seattle, Washington.
"Having an all-Boeing fleet is a key component of our growth strategy and our ability to achieve 27 consecutive years of profitability," said Xiamen Airlines president Che Shanglun. "With excellent reliability, operational efficiency and long range, Boeing's planes have enabled us to expand our network internationally."
Said Boeing regional sales chief Ihssane Mounir: "Xiamen Airlines is a valued customer of the Boeing Company and we are delighted to see their remarkable growth over the past 29 years. "
Xiamen Airlines commenced service in 1985 with two Boeing 737-200s serving three cities. The carrier is now China's sixth largest, serving 218 domestic routes as well as 26 international and regional routes.
Over the next two years, Xiamen Airlines plans to add 30 more B737-800s and six more B787s, expanding its fleet to 136 airplanes, and to expand globally by gradually forming a route network that radiates across the Asia Pacific region and connects with Europe and the US.
Boeing projects investments of US$800 billion in China for the purchase of 5,580 new commercial aircraft during the next 20 years. It would account for 16 per cent of global demand, and reflect an average requirement of 200 single-aisle and 60 wide-body aircraft each year, according to the Shipping Gazette.
