Air Sahara intends to buy another 30 Boeing planes

Singapore: Air Sahara plans to order another 30 Boeing aircraft on top of the 10 Boeing 737-800s it has already ordered this year, the airline's president, Alok Sharma, said today.
"We hope to have them ordered and delivered by 2009," he said in an interview.
The carrier would consider 737-700s, 737-800s and 737-900s but "most should be 737-800s", he said.
This week Boeing named Air Sahara as the customer behind a previously unidentified order finalized earlier this year for 10 737-800 airplanes, valued at more than $700 million based on published sticker prices. They will be delivered from mid-2009.
Air Sahara plans to boost its fleet to 70-75 planes from the current 27 in the next five years, Sharma said.
