Boeing 737 MAX 10 configuration finalized
The firm configuration of Boeing 737 MAX10 is completed and the aircraft is now moving into the detailed design phase prior to the start of production, the company announced on February 6, 2018, at the Singapore Airshow.
"The steps we've taken to reach this point ensure the MAX 10 will be the most efficient and profitable single-aisle airplane the market has ever seen," said Randy Tinseth, vice president of Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We're working closely with our airline customers to deliver on the performance and efficiency benefits we've promised."
The 230-seater single-aisle MAX 10 has a stretched fuselage, 66 inches longer than MAX 9, and shares many similarities with other 737 MAX family aircraft: CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, etc.
The MAX 10 was launched at the 2017 Paris Air Show and currently has over 416 orders and commitments from 18 customers. The first deliveries are scheduled in 2020.
“The MAX 10 will soon join the rest of the 737 MAX family,” is noted in a statement by Boeing. “The first MAX 7 rolled out of the paint hangar earlier this week and will soon start flight tests. The MAX 8 has been in service since 2017, already carrying more than 1.8 million passengers. And the first MAX 9 is scheduled to be delivered in the coming weeks”.
