North African carrier Air Algérie received its 50th Boeing jetliner – a Next-Generation 737-800 recently.
The 737 was the fourth of seven ordered in 2009. This delivery also marked the 40-year partnership between Boeing and Air Algérie.
Since receiving its first Boeing airplane in March 1971, Air Algérie has expanded to include 18 737s and three 767s.
“Boeing airplanes have delivered exceptional value in our growth plan,” said Abdelwahid Bouabdellah, president director general and CEO of Air Algérie.
