At Boeing, the 737 is designed in three series following the logic of successive evolution: the 737Classics (-100, -200, -300, -400 and -500), the 737NextGeneration (-600, -700, -800 and -900) and the 737MAX.
Driven by the arrival of the Airbus A320 and increasing competitive pressure, the North American manufacturer is working to modernise its catalogue (737Classics). The 737 NG (Next Generation) series was born, including the -600 -700 -800 & -900 variants. This extensive upgrade increases the range and the ability to fly transcontinental routes. In addition, fuel capacity has been improved to allow for a higher maximum take-off weight.
The 737-800 version has 189 seats arranged around a single aisle. This layout is the most popular in the charter market. With 189 passengers on board, travel from Paris to Stockholm or Lyon to Marrakech is possible. It is a popular partner for short and medium-haul flights, particularly for its comfort on board, as well as its excellent value for money.
