About the Boeing 737

Boeing announced on Feb 19, 1965 the intention to build a short range twin turbofan under the designation 737. The first 737-100 made it's maiden flight on April 9, 1967. The family likeness of the 737 to it's bigger siblings the 707 and the 727 can be clearly seen. Boeing chose to retain a commonality with the fuselage and cockpit of the 727, and the tail unit of the 707. Within two months of the initial announcement of the intention to build the 737-100 Boeing announced the larger capacity 737-200. This type first flew August 8, 1967.

In the 1980's Boeing began a growth series that to this day continues to expand the product line to meet customers demands. In 1984 the first -300 flew with the new quieter and more fuel efficient CFM-56 turbofan engines offering an increase of 20% specific fuel consumption.

In the 1990's the latest current variants that Boeing has introduced continue to be manufactured. It is currently the most successful airliner ever built.

In December 1996 Boeing rolled out the first member of the updated next generation 737 family, a 737-700 intensifying its battle with Europe's Airbus Industrie and McDonnell Douglas for the narrow body transport market.

The three new designs designated -600, -700, -800 represent a key test for Boeings new sales strategy. This new group of the next generation 737 gives Boeing a family of highly common, 100-189 seat jets that can outperform most of Airbus' popular A-320 series at a lower price and lower operating costs.
