APB Wins New Winglet Order

Southwest Airlines has ordered ‘Split Scimitar’ winglets from Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) for its Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft. The Split Scimitar uses the existing structure of blended winglets, but adds strengthened spars, aerodynamic scimitar tips, and a large ventral strake. APB expects to receive FAA certification for the winglets later this month.
