Jet Airways has become the second airline in India to cross the century mark by taking delivery of the 100th aircraft in its fleet – a Boeing 737-800 equipped with the Sky Interior (see interior images here), tail number VT-JBV.

The aircraft which was delivered by Boeing on November 15, 2011, is leased to Jet by GECAS and is configured with 8 Premiere (business) and 162 economy seats.

It was ferried to India and was photographed by spotters at Brussels. It is rather surprising that Jet Airways has not put any special livery or celebratory scheme on this aircraft.

VT-JBV will commence commercial operations from December 5, 2011.
