Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) announced that South Africa’s Mango Airlines has ordered its latest Split Scimitar Winglet technology for its Boeing Next Generation 737-800 fleet.
Mango Airlines plans to perform the first installation of the Split Scimitar Winglets in February at South African Airways Technical facility.
The Split Scimitar Winglet modification reduces Boeing Next-Generation 737 block fuel consumption by anadditional 2.2 percent over the Blended Winglets, the company says. The Split Scimitar Winglet System will reduce Mango’s annual fuel requirements by more than 155,000 liters per aircraft, and their carbon dioxide emissions by over 390 tonnes per aircraft per year.
“Mango Airlines clearly recognizes the enhanced performance and improvement to the operating economics of the Boeing Next Generation 737-800 fleet from the installation of Split Scimitar Winglets,” says Aviation Partners Boeing director of sales and marketing Christopher Stafford. “With the installation of the Split Scimitar Winglet System, not only will Mango Airlines realize significant fuel savings in its network, but it will also show its environmental stewardship.”
