Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise (SALE) has signed an agreement with Kenya Airways for the lease of three new Boeing 737-800s.
The aircraft will be delivered new in the fourth quarter of 2006 and will be leased to the carrier for eight years each. They will join an existing fleet of four Next Generation 737s at the airline. Powered by CFM56-7B engines and will be fitted with fuel-saving winglets, the aircraft will be used to replace the airline's Boeing 737-200s.
The aircraft are the first of 20 Next Generation 737s recently ordered by SALE from Boeing. The deal marks the first time that SALE has worked with Kenya Airways.
