Boeing B737

The Boeing 737 is a narrow-body aircraft manufactured by Boeing at its Renton Factory in Washington. It was designed to support the Boeing 727 on short and thin routes and has a fuselage width and seating configuration of six abreast with two underwing turbofans, similar to the Boeing 707. The project was initiated in 1964, and the first 737-100 flew in April 1967, entering service in February 1968 with Lufthansa. The lengthened 737-200 was introduced in April 1968 and has since undergone four generations, with various models accommodating between 85 to 215 passengers.
