new dutch gov't boeing €18m more expensive than airbus alternative

The new government aircraft is costing the Dutch taxpayer €18m more from US plane maker Boeing than from cheaper – and in  EU terms more logical – rival  Airbus, the NRC said on Tuesday.The new government aircraft, a Boeing737 Business Jet carries a price tag of €92.7m but given that the old government plane, a Fokker 70, was sold for €3.7m brings the replacement cost to €89m, just under the €90m cap imposed on the order. The Boeing is scheduled for delivery in early 2019.However European aerospace group Airbus has two similar aircraft, which use newer technology and could be delivered sooner, on the market for about €75m, the NRC said.The new government plane provides seating for 24 passengers and seven crew. It is capable of flying non-stop between the Netherlands and Aruba, a constituen

government sells its old plane to australia, buys new one

The Dutch official government plane, which was bought in 1996 for 75 million guilders, has been sold to Australian airline Alliance Airlines, NOS reports.Acting infrastructure minister Melanie Schulz told parliament the airline paid some €3.7m for the Fokker 70 which was used by the government and the royal family for official visits.The PH-KBX, whose last three letters refer to queen Beatrix, is no longer up to standard and has a limited range. It cannot, for example, cover the distance between the Netherlands to the Antilles without a stop-over.During a state visit by the queen Máxima and king Willem-Alexander to Australia last year the plane was only used for internal flights and was flown to Australia without its royal cargo, taking 2.5 days to do so.The government has now opted for a

And yes, there will be mood lighting.Next year, Alaska Airlines says it will debut a redesigned cabin complete with new seats and more.
