Boeing debuted the first of its 737 MAX 10 aircraft at the company’s facility in Renton, Washington, on Friday. According to Boeing, it currently has more than 550 orders and commitments for the aircraft. The MAX 10 is the largest of the MAX family, which also includes the MAX 7, 8 and 9.
“Today is not just about a new airplane,” said Boeing Vice President and General Manager of the 737 program Mark Jenks. “It’s about the people who design, build and support it. This team’s relentless focus on safety and quality shows the commitment we have to our airline customers and every person who flies on a Boeing airplane.”
The 737 MAX 10 is expected to fly for the first time next year. The CFM International LEAP-1B powered aircraft has a range of 3,300 NM and can seat up to 230 passengers. Boeing says it will offer the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane yet produced.
