South African airline Comair has begun its fleet renewal programme with the delivery of the first of eight Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.



The first aircraft is adorned with the livery of British Airways, for whom the Johannesburg-based carrier operates under franchise. Comair's existing all-Boeing fleet includes 18 737NG and seven 737 Classic aircraft, which are operated on the BA franchise and by its Kulula division.



"The arrival of the Max 8 aircraft is a continuation of our fleet renewal programme and builds on the most modern and efficient fleet in South Africa," states Wrenelle Stander, executive director of Comair's airline division.
