Turkish charter carrier Corendon Airlines has tentatively ordered WheelTug electric taxi systems for its Boeing 737 fleet.

The operator placed 10 production slots for the electric nose wheel drive system with the Gibraltar-headquartered engineering company.

WheelTug plans to certify the equipment - which will be directly integrated into the aircraft's nose wheels - later this year.

According to Flightglobal's Ascend Online database, Corendon operates four 737-800s and a 737-300 while sister carrier Corendon Dutch Airlines has two 737-800s.
