TUI Airways becomes first UK airline to welcome Boeing 737 Max

TUI Airways has welcomed the first 737-8 MAX aircraft into its fleet.

The new Boeing aircraft has departed on its inaugural passenger flight to Malaga, Spain. TUI is the first UK registered airline to take delivery of the new Boeing aircraft, and marks the first of 32 MAX to join the UK fleet. 

Operating on short and mid-haul routes, the new aircraft type is one of the most carbon-efficient, omitting lower emissions, using 14% less fuel than the previous 737-NG model, and offering a longer range and a reduction in noise pollution. It also boasts a modern interior including in-seat, chargeable USB ports and mood lighting.

John Murphy, the airline's managing director, said: “Today we continue on our journey to be Europe's most carbon-efficient airline as we welcome the first of these Boeing MAX aircraft into the TUI Airways fleet, joining our TUI Group colleagues who took delivery earlier this year. 

“We have a strong history with Manchester, we launched the very first Dreamliner here back in 2013 so it made sense for us to make the North West a major hub for the new MAX and are proud to offer a diverse range of holidays destinations from the region. As a holiday airline, we believe the experience begins the moment you step on board, and by having one of the youngest, most modern fleets we hope to offer the very best service for our customers.”
