FIRST BOEING 737-500 FOR CZECHOSLOVAKIAN CARRIER

 FIRST BOEING 737-500 FOR CZECHOSLOVAKIAN CARRIER
 SEATTLE, July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- CSA, the flag carrier of


Czechoslovakia, took delivery of its first Boeing aircraft, a 737-500, on Friday and its second one today, Boeing Commercial Airplane Group announced. The carrier has an additional three 737-500s on order with Boeing and also has options on four additional 737 aircraft with specific models to be determined at a later date.
 When the order was announced earlier this year, Oldrich Churain, CSA director-general, said, "These advanced-technology 737s will enhance CSA's ability to provide economical and reliable service to its customers."
 CSA, which began international jet service in 1957, intends to replace its existing fleet of Soviet-built TU134s with the new technology short-to-medium-range Boeing 737s. As configured for CSA, the 737-500 will provide mixed-class seating for 111 passengers.
 With a 99.15-percent dispatch reliability rate worldwide, the 737 has become the world's most popular commercial airplane, with total announced orders of 2,985. Powered by fuel-efficient, quiet CFM56-3 high-bypass engines, the aircraft is a good community neighbor even at the most noise-sensitive airports.
 The Boeing 737 is quickly becoming a mainstay in the fleets of Central European carriers. LOT Polish Airlines, Malev Hungarian Airlines, Balkan Bulgarian Airlines, and now CSA, all benefit from the exceptional fuel efficiency, advanced digital avionics technology and improved aerodynamics of the 737 family.
 To date, 22 customers have ordered 286 of the -500 model of the 737.
