Sunwing Airlines Acquires Brand New Boeing 737-800 Series Aircraft

Sunwing Airlines, Inc. announced that it has taken delivery of its newest aircraft directly from the Boeing facility in Seattle. Sunwing representatives travelled to the Seattle headquarters of Boeing to pick up their latest aircraft -- the 737-800 Boeing plane which is configured within Sunwing fleet specification to accommodate 189 passengers. The Next-Generation aircraft contains most modern interior features such as an innovative cabin mood lighting system, pivoting overhead stowage bins that add to the openness of the cabin, as well as advanced-technology wing design that helps increase fuel capacity and efficiency. After leaving Boeing, the 737-800 series plane was retrofitted with the Split Scimitar Winglets technology prior to its integration into Sunwing Airlines flight operations. This technology improves performance of the aircraft and decreases fuel burn by approximately 7% over the same aircraft with no Winglets.
