Boeing Introduces 737 MAX

06 September 2011

Boeing has unveiled the 737 MAX which they claim builds on the strengths of the Next-Generation 737.

"The 737 MAX offers airlines the right solution and the best choice for creating the most successful future with improved profitability," said Nicole Piasecki, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Integration, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737 MAX will deliver maximum efficiency, maximum reliability and the Boeing Sky Interior will continue to offer maximum passenger comfort. We 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."

According to Boeing, the 737 MAX will deliver big fuel savings that airlines will need to successfully compete in the future. They say airlines will benefit from a 7% advantage in operating costs over future competing airplanes as a result of optimised CFM International LEAP-1B engines, more efficient structural design and lower maintenance requirements.

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 $2 trillion.
