Belgium's First Boeing 737-800 For City Bird S.A. Readies For Flight

A City Bird S.A. Next-Generation 737-800 taxis on the runway at Boeing Field, Seattle, in preparation for take-off. City Bird is the first Belgian carrier to operate a 737-800 - the most technologically-advanced airplane in its class. The Next-Generation 737 was designed and built to be a quieter, more fuel-efficient airplane. The model's new CFM56-7 engines produced by CFMI, a joint venture of General Electric Co. of the United States and Snecma of France, meet community noise restrictions well below current Stage 3 limits and below expected Stage 4 limits. Emissions also are reduced beyond required standards.

Created in 1996 with a bold and ambitious mission to provide affordable and quality flights all over the world, City Bird S.A. is rapidly expanding its fleet and route network.
