Alaska Airlines (Boeing 737-8 aircraft)

Alaska Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 737-8 aircraft.

The introduction of the Boeing 737 MAX comes second after the Boeing 737-9 model. The airline plans to take delivery of between 15 to 25 Boeing aircraft annually from 2024 to 2027, with the Boeing 737-10 model expected to join the fleet in 2025. For the Boeing 737-8 model, they have plans to receive seven aircraft this year, with the next four due for delivery in March.

Alaska Airlines revised its order for Boeing 737-9 models in March 2022, adding additional orders for the Boeing 737-8 and Boeing 737-10 models. Their Boeing 737 MAX order stands at 80 aircraft, with options for another 105.

They will invest $130 million in refurbishing the cabins of their Boeing 737-800 fleet, starting in the second half of 2024. The transition to a 161-seat configuration, including 16 first-class seats, is underway. The new first-class seats will be equipped with footrests and device holders. The first five Boeing 737-8 aircraft will be retrofitted later.
