MAERSK AIR ORDERS TWO BOEING 737-300 TWINJETS

 PARIS, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Maersk Air, the Danish independent airline, has placed an order for two 737-300 twinjets, the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group (BCAG) announced today at the Paris Air Show. Value of the order is about $70 million.
 "Operating profitably is a big challenge for airlines given the economic conditions facing our industry today," said Richard R. Albrecht, BCAG executive vice president, noting that Maersk has been consistently profitable. "We're proud the 737 family has helped Maersk achieve such good results."
 From its base in Copenhagen, Maersk Air provides scheduled and charter service to destinations in Denmark and Europe. Since its first 737, a -200 model, was ordered in 1976, Maersk has purchased 38 Boeing 737s, including 19 new-generation 737-300s and five 737-500s.
