MAX 10 in Paris debut

The newest member of the Boeing B737 MAX family, the B737 MAX 10, was put on display by the manufacturer at the Paris Air Show with the claim it will have the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane produced so far.

Boeing said at the Paris Air Show the aircraft had already gained “wide market acceptance”, with more than 240 orders and commitments secured from more than 10 customers worldwide.

Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Kevin McAllister said: "The 737 MAX 10 extends the competitive advantage of the 737 MAX family and we’re honoured so many customers have embraced the outstanding value it will bring to their fleets.

“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, range capability and fuel efficiency."

Design changes for the new model include a fuselage stretch of 66in compared to the 737 MAX 9 and levered main landing gear. The aircraft can carry up to 230 passengers. There is also a modified wing for low speed drag reduction.

Like the other 737 MAX models, the MAX 10 incorporates high-tech CFM International LEAP-1B engines, advanced technology winglets, the Boeing Sky interior and large flight-deck displays.
