PanARMENIAN.Net – Boeing has maintained the pressure on Airbus, its main rival, with the launch of the biggest version yet of the 737 short-haul jet, BBC News reports.
The world’s largest commercial aircraft maker announced plans for the 737 Max 10 at the Paris Air Show on Monday, June 19.
The new variant of the plane can carry up to 230 passengers and already has more than 240 orders from 10 customers.
Boeing says the new 737 will have the lowest operating costs of any single-aisle plane ever produced.
“The Max 10 will provide customers with even more flexibility in terms of airplane range and higher seat count,” chief executive Dennis Muilenburg told the BBC.
