Boeing Readies First Arkia 757-300 For Delivery

The first Boeing 757-300 for Arkia Israeli Airlines shows off its colors near the Boeing Commercial Airplanes paint hangar in Seattle, Wash. The fuel-efficient model is scheduled to make its debut in Arkia's fleet in February. Arkia will use the 757-300, a stretched version of the 757-200, to expand its routes and offer more international charter flights. Tel-Aviv-based Arkia is the second customer to take delivery of the 757-300. The model is already in service with Condor Flugdienst of Germany.
