Mango Airlines to install Split Scimitar Winglets on Boeing Next Generation 737-800 fleet

Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) has 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.

"Mango Airlines clearly recognises 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 realise significant fuel savings in its network, but it will also show its environmental stewardship."

The Split Scimitar Winglet modification reduces Boeing Next-Generation 737 block fuel consumption by an additional 2.2% over the Blended Winglets.  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.

"As a low-cost airline, Mango is continuously looking at ways to maximise the operating profitability of our fleet in order to remain competitive in an increasingly challenging environment.  We are therefore both proud and excited to have Aviation Partners Boeing as our partner in this endeavor and eagerly await the realization of the projected savings," adds Marelize Labuschagne, acting chief executive officer, Mango Airlines.
