Boeing Updates 737 Model With New Aircraft Family

31 August 2011


US aircraft manufacturer Boeing on August 30, 2011, announced the launch of the 737 MAX, the name of the new engine variant of the established 737.

The new family of aircraft – the 737 MAX 7, 737 MAX 8 and 737 MAX 9 – builds on the strengths of the Next-Generation 737.

"The 737 MAX will deliver maximum efficiency, maximum reliability and the Boeing Sky Interior will continue to offer maximum passenger comfort. We [are to] call it the 737 MAX because it optimizes everything we and our customers have learned about designing, building, maintaining and operating the world's best single-aisle airplane,” said Nicole Piasecki, vice president of Business Development and Strategic Integration.

The 737 MAX will deliver significant fuel savings to provide operating cost efficiencies as a result of optimized CFM International LEAP-1B engines, and its more efficient structural design and lower maintenance requirements.

The 737 MAX will build upon the Next-Generation 737's highest reliability performance of any airplane in the world with its 99.7% on-time departure rate.

The new 737 Boeing Sky Interior design will be installed in the 737 MAX providing spacious cabin headroom and overhead bins that disappear into the ceiling yet carry more bags.

The Boeing 737 is the world's most popular commercial jet transport, with more than 9,000 orders to date. Boeing forecasts global demand for more than 23,000 airplanes in the 737's market segment over the next 20 years at a value of nearly USD2 trillion.
