Boeing and Russia’s UTair announced an “agreement” yesterday calling for the purchase of 33 new 737-800s and seven 737-900ERs. The deal, which remains subject to final confirmation, calls for deliveries to begin in 2013. 

Now flying a fleet of more than 30 Boeing airplanes, UTair just this year became the first operator in Russia and Eastern Europe to fly new Boeing 737-800s equipped with the Boeing Sky Interior. By the end of this year, UTair expects the size of its 737-800 fleet to grow to nine airplanes.

 “These airplanes meet today’s commercial needs of the airline by their value-for-money and availability of early delivery positions,” said Andrey Martirosov, UTair CEO.
