Flybe Ordered 737's?

Thu May 11, 2006 3:44 am

Anyone know if Flybe have ordered any 737's?

"The £12m investment, partially funded with aid from SWERDA, has created industry leading facilities for Flybe’s regional aviation services business. The hangar is flexible enough that it can accommodate not only the current fleet of regional aircraft but has been future-proofed to cope with much larger aircraft such as the Boeing 737 and the Embraer 195 which are currently on order for Flybe. On average it is expected that the hangar will have a throughput of 110 aircraft a year, of which 75% are non-Flybe aircraft."

I know they are currently leasing 737's from Astraus. However, the article above implies that Flybe have ordered 737's as well as Embraers. However, the writer may not have meant that.

Anyone with any info?

I don't think the writer meant that. It can house up to the 737, and also the E1955 that they ordered. That is more like what he meant IMHO.
