TEA-Switzerland takes delivery of its first Boeing Next-Generation 737-700. The airplane, leased from International Lease Finance Corporation, will be used on charter flights to a variety of Mediterranean vacation destinations this season, with more distant destinations such as Dubai, Goa, Male and Phuket being planned for the future. The Next-Generation 737-700 has the longest range capability of any airplane in its class. The all-Boeing operator will take delivery of another 737-700 in May 1998. With nearly 4,000 orders, the 737 is the best-selling commercial jetliner of all time.
