The B737-800 is a part of Bluebird Nordic’s fleet renewal. Last year the company began its expansion, adding additional aircraft to its fleet, and are planning to continue doing so in the upcoming several years. The growing demand for cargo transport is one of the main reasons why Bluebird Nordic has been undergoing new development in its growth plan.

“So far, our and our customers’ experience operating the converted B737-800 is very positive,” Audronė Keinytė, CEO of Bluebird Nordic, said.

“The aircraft are ensuring reliable operations – with impressive range and payload for an aircraft of this size. We are expecting five more aircraft before the end of the year, which will take us to eight -800s in our fleet, in addition to our B737 classic fleet,” Keinyte added.

Bluebird Nordic, a member of the Avia Solutions Group, is planning to continue adding more B737-800s to its fleet in 2023.
