Avation's Executive Chairman, Jeff Chatfield, said: "We are constantly looking to further diversify our aircraft portfolio and operator base. We believe that the Boeing 737-800 NG is an excellent aircraft, indeed one of the most successful and popular aircraft types ever made, with a good residual value outlook.
