 AIR BERLIN PURCHASES TWO BOEING 737s
 SEATTLE, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The German carrier Air Berlin,


headquartered in Berlin, has placed two firm orders and taken two options for Boeing 737-400 aircraft, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group confirmed today. The order, with options, is worth approximately $156 million.
 The 737-400s will be utilized on the carrier's routes between Berlin, Frankfurt, Leipzig, Munich, Cologne, Munster, Osnabruck and the Mediterranean, North Africa and Middle East regions. Air Berlin became a fully registered German company following the reunification of Germany in 1991.
 "With a dispatch reliability of 99.2 percent, the Boeing 737-400 is certainly the aircraft to assist Air Berlin in continuing to provide reliable and economical service to its expanding network of customers," said Air Berlin Managing Director Joachim Hunold.
 The three models of the new-generation 737 family offer capacities ranging from 108 to 168 seats, giving airlines flexibility to match a specific aircraft to changing traffic requirements. As configured for Air Berlin, the 737-400s will accommodate 167 passengers in a single- class arrangement.
 The twinjets are known for their quiet, fuel efficient CFM-56 engines, advanced digital avionics technology (including wind- shear detection and avoidance) and improved aerodynamics.
 To date, 156 customers have ordered 2,981 of all variants of the 737, of which 394 are the -400 model.
