The MD-82 is a mid-size, medium-range airliner that was introduced in 1980. The design was the second generation of the DC-9 with two rear fuselage-mounted turbofan engines, small, highly efficient wings, and a T-tail. The aircraft has distinctive five-abreast seating in coach class. It was a lengthened DC-9-50 with a higher maximum take-off weight (MTOW) and a higher fuel capacity. The aircraft series was designed for frequent, short-haul flights for 172 passengers.
Being the oldest airliners of the fleet, the aircraft is set to be phased out in 2014. We purchased the aircrafts from our partner airline, Dominican Airways
