EX-YU Aviation News Blog can exclusively reveal that Jat will be returning its sole Boeing B737-400 once the 700 series aircraft enter service. The B737-400 registered YU-AOS (made in 1989) has been with Jat since 2004 and is leased from CIT Aerospace. The B737-700s will be deployed to popular destinations such as London, Moscow and Zurich. The new fleet addition will make Jat’s fleet more reliable after mechanical problems caused major delays during this week, emphasising the fleet shortage Jat is currently facing. At this present time there are no plans to introduce the B737-700s on Jat’s longest service, to Abu Dhabi, although major changes are expected on this line starting in spring 2010 - aircraft and frequency wise.
Meanwhile, the airline continues to refurbish its B737-300 fleet. A further 2 aircraft have received new seats in economy class.
