"The delivery of our hundredth aircraft is a major milestone for everyone at Jet Airways. We are also happy to have worked closely with GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) as a partner since 1995 and look forward for more fruitful affiliation in the years to come as Jet Airways plans to expand its domestic and international network," Jet Airways' CEO Nikos Kardassis said in a statement issued here.
The aircraft configured with eight premiere and 162 economy seats will commence commercial operations from December 5, 2011.
The new Boeing 737-800 aircraft also possesses superior on board, sound quality and clarity through new speakers that have been improved in each passenger row, the statement said.
