Boeing on November 22 debuted the first 737 MAX 10 at its factory in Renton, Washington, with thousands of employees on hand. During a ceremony, Boeing recognized the effort by employees in completing production of the newest member of the 737 MAX family.
“Today is not just about a new airplane. It’s about the people who design, build and support it,” said Mark Jenks, vice president and general manager of the 737 program. “This team’s relentless focus on safety and quality shows the commitment we have to our airline customers and every person who flies on a Boeing airplane.”
The 737 MAX 10, the largest variant of the MAX family, can seat up to 230 passengers. Boeing states the airplane will offer the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane ever produced. The airplane will now undergo system checks and engine runs prior to first flight next year, an effort being led by 737 chief pilot Jennifer Henderson.
