Boeing, Air Lease Corp. and S7 Airlines celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first 737 MAX, via lease from ALC. S7, operated by Globus Airlines, becomes the first Russian airline to fly the new and improved 737 airplane.

S7 plans to take 10 more 737 MAX jets over the next few years as part of its strategic plan to strengthen its airplane fleet.

“The new Boeing 737MAX that we received today from our partners at Air Lease Corporation offers even more passenger comfort, reduced noise level and lower environmental impact. We are delighted that our passengers will be the first in Russia to appreciate the benefits onboard these new generation airplanes,” said Vadim Klebanov, general director of Globus Airlines.
