Nolinor Aviation announced that the company is adding a Boeing 737-300 aircraft to its current fleet of 737-200s; beginning this spring. Based at Mirabel in Québec since 2005, Nolinor thus becomes one of the few carriers in the East to own an aircraft of this type.
The Boeing 737-300 is available in various configurations: one with 130 economy-class seats, a 44-seat executive version and a full cargo configuration offering a 13,600 kg (30,000 lb) payload.
“The acquisition of this more modern and more fuel-efficient aircraft will reduce our C02 footprint,” said Jacques Prud’Homme, President of Nolinor. “The 737-300 is a great addition to our existing fleet, creating new possibilities for our current and future customers,” he continued. Another recent acquisition by the carrier is SkyTrack technology, which generates significant savings on its operating costs and provides real-time monitoring of aircraft status.
With the 737-300, Nolinor can fly bigger payloads non-stop to more distant destinations. Mexico City, for example, could be reached from Montreal in just 5½ hours. In addition, on-board amenities and passenger comfort give passengers an in-flight experience that is superior to anything they can expect on a regular airline. With the new plane, Nolinor will be able to service sports clubs, cultural groups like orchestras, convention guests and tourist groups, in addition to making it available to other carriers in need of a replacement aircraft.
