Jet Airways has taken delivery of the first of its eleven Boeing 737-800 with Sky Interior. It has the Boeing 787 inspired shape, color, décor and texture.

The balance aircraft will be delivered between October 2011 and March 2013. The bright new color and décor of the aircraft with modern, sculpted sidewalls and larger windows, combined with the effect of the light-emitting diode (LED) lighting significantly enhances the sense of spaciousness in the cabin, says Boeing.

Another feature are the new pivot bins, with greater overhead bin capacity for storage.

Of the 11 new aircraft, 2 Boeing 737 – 800 will have 16 Première and 138 Economy Class seating configuration complete with Jet Airways world-class in-flight entertainment system. The remaining 9 Boeings will a have 8 Premiere and 162 Economy Class seating configuration.

“The Boeing 737 has been an essential part of our product offering in the past and Jet Airways selected the next generation state-of-the art Boeing 737-800 aircraft because of its high degree of operational flexibility and economy,” said Sudheer Raghavan, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways.

Jet Airways currently operates a fleet of 98 aircraft, which includes 10 Boeing 777-300 ER aircraft, 12 Airbus A330-200 aircraft, 56 next generation Boeing 737-700/800/900 aircraft and 20 ATR 72-500 turboprop aircraft.
