SEATTLE, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Aviation Partners Boeing (APB)
announced that Tokyo-based Japan Airlines has ordered 6 Blended Winglet
Systems (with options) for Boeing 767-300ER passenger aircraft. Already an
operator of Next-Generation 737 Blended Winglets, this is the first JAL order
for 767-300ER Blended Winglets.

"Blended Winglets will improve aerodynamic performance on Japan Airline's
767-300ERs, which helps achieve their company-wide commitment to reduce costs
and greenhouse gases," says Troy Brekken, Aviation Partners Boeing director of
sales & marketing. "With Blended Winglets installed on their 767-300ERs,
Japan Airlines will realize fuel savings of between 4% and 5%, as well as
corresponding CO2 reductions for cleaner operations."

Blended Winglet technology installed on a Boeing 767-300ER/F can reduce fuel
burn by up to 500,000 gallons per aircraft per year, while reducing carbon
dioxide emissions by over 5,000 tons per year. Blended Winglets can also
extend the range of a Boeing 767-300ER/F by as much as 320 nautical miles, or
increase the payload of the aircraft by as much as 16,000 pounds.

Nearly 5,000 Blended Winglet Systems are now in service on Boeing 737s, 757s
and 767s with more than 200 airlines worldwide. Since certification in 2009,
APB has taken orders (firm and options) for 485 Boeing 767-300ER/F Blended
Winglet systems. APB estimates that Blended Winglets have saved airlines
worldwide more than 3.6 billion gallons of jet fuel to-date.

Partners, Inc. and The Boeing Company.
