S7 Airlines charter subsidiary Globus has taken delivery of its first new Boeing 737-800 aircraft as part of its fleet expansion plan.

Delivery of the aircraft, acquired through leasing company Crammington Aviation, is in line with the agreement signed with Boeing in 2006 for the supply of 10 737-800s.

The aircraft has a two-class configuration with 12 seats at the front of the cabin and 148 in economy class.

Speaking at a handover ceremony in Seattle, Globus director Alexander Steblin said it would receive a second of the type directly from the manufacturer in May.

Globus already operates four -800 variants acquired on the secondary market. It also has four leased 737-400s.
