Boeing Co. on Monday announced the launch of the 737 MAX 10 as the newest member of the 737 MAX family with what the aerospace manufacturer called "the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane ever produced."
Design changes for the 737 MAX 10 include a fuselage stretch of 66 inches, or about 1.68 meters, compared to the 737 MAX 9 and levered main landing gear, with an expanded capacity to carry up to 230 passengers, or 10 people more than that of the 737 MAX 9.
Like other 737 MAX models, according to Boeing, the latest model incorporates the latest technology engines, Advanced Technology winglets, large flight deck displays, and other improvements to deliver efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.
The new plane has a range of 3,215 miles, or 5,960 km, shorter than 737 MAX 9's 3,515 miles, or 6,510 km.
The 737 MAX continues to be the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,700 orders to date.
