150 and counting

At Boeing we love to celebrate milestones—especially ones involving our airline customers. And with customers like Lion Air, we’ve had the privilege of celebrating a lot of them.

This week, we joined Lion Air in a special ribbon cutting for its 150th 737, which happens to be 737-800. And what would a milestone delivery be without a special livery?

When Lion Air started in 1999, it had just one airplane - a 737-200. Today, the airline has grown into Indonesia’s largest private airline and is one of the largest operators of the 737-900ER in the world.

Each of Lion Air’s new 737s features the Boeing Sky Interior. And with every new airplane, the airline is gaining a competitive advantage in operating costs and passenger comfort.

Congratulations to the entire Lion Air team. We look forward to even more reasons to celebrate.

A post about how "special livery" is created would be interesting. Not just the graphics but how they are translated into masks (if they are) and the final production.

I'm sure its not two painters on a ladder with airbrushes and masking tape.

Congrats to Lion Air and Boeing on 150 737s delivered, a whole lot more where these came from are coming.
