Skyservice Airlines introduces Boeing B-757 aircraft equipped with blended winglets.


Skyservice Airlines said on 26 November that it has, with the support of CIT Aerospace, introduced into service a Boeing B-757 aircraft equipped with Aviation Partners Boeing blended winglets.

The carrier said that this aircraft is more efficient than any other Boeing 757 operating in Canada, having recently returned from a state-of-the-art modification where blended winglets were added to the outboard wingtips of the aircraft, adding ten feet of wingspan.

Skyservice expects the B-757 equipped with winglets to save over 360,000 litres of fuel annually, translating into a reduction of 765 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. No financial details have been disclosed.
