Boeing has launched its biggest version of the single-aisle 737, the 737 MAX 10, 2017 Paris Air Show on this week at Le Bouget Airport.
The US company says it already has more than 240 orders for the aircraft from 10+ customers worldwide.
Boeing airliners boss Kevin McAllister said, “Airlines wanted a larger, better option in the large single-aisle segment with the operating advantages of the 737 MAX family. Adding the 737 MAX 10 gives our customers the most flexibility in the market, providing their fleets the range capability, fuel efficiency and unsurpassed reliability that the 737 MAX family is widely known for.”
Boeing claims the 737 MAX 10 will deliver five percent lower trip costs and five percent lower seat-mile costs.
The 737 MAX 10 can carry up to 230 passengers. Design changes include a fuselage stretch of 66in (1.68m) compared to the 737 MAX 9 and levered main landing gear.
Other changes include to the mid-exit door, a lighter flat aft pressure bulkhead and a modified wing for low speed drag reduction. It will be powered by CFM International LEAP-1B engines and have Advanced Technology winglets.
