Lion Air, Indonesia’s largest private airline, took delivery on April 21 of its first Boeing 737-900ER fitted with the new Boeing Sky Interior.
Designed to improve the flying experience for passengers dramatically, the Boeing Sky Interior features a number of enhancements. The sculpted sidewalls of the interior are intended to provide passengers with a feeling of spaciousness. New window reveals are sculpted to make the windows seem larger.
LED lighting can be programmed to provide a soft-blue sky overhead or to create different effects during the flight. Large stowage bins pivot down and out.
Intuitive placement of switches and improved sound quality are further features designed to enhance the passenger experience.
Lion Air was the launch customer for the Boeing 737-900ER in 2005. The airline’s April 21, 2011 delivery is the airline’s 43rd 737-900ER.
In all, the airline has ordered 178 Next-Generation 737s. Lion Air operates an all-Boeing fleet.
