Lion Receives 100th 737NG

Indonesia’s Lion Group has taken delivery of its 100th 737. The 737-900ER features a special livery commemorating the delivery. “We’ve grown from one airplane and today we’re taking our 100th Next-Generation 737. It’s an airplane that has allowed us to grow and be successful because of the low operating cost and passenger comfort,” said Lion Group president Rusdi Kirana. Lion Air, which was established in 1999, was the launch customer for the 737-900ER. The airline currently operates 67 737-900ERs and 19 737-800s, with the group’s other Next-Generation 737s allocated to its full-service carrier in Indonesia, Batik Air, and to its overseas affiliates Malindo Air and Thai Lion Air.
