Description: The Boeing 737 is a popular, twin-engine, short- to medium-range airplane renowned by its reliability, simplicity and low maintenance and operating costs. The first 737, a 737-100 model, was delivered to Lufthansa in 1968. Since then, more than 10,000 737s have been ordered by airlines all over the world. More than 5,000 Next Generation 737s have been sold to date since its entry into service in 1998. The third generation 737, called the 737 MAX, has logged more than 1,400 aircraft on order since its launch in 2011. The Boeing 737 MAX will enter into service by 2017.

The Boeing 737-900ER (Extended Range), originally known as the 737-900X, is an advanced version of the 737-900 model designed to carry more passengers and fly farther. The 737-900ER program was launched by Boeing on 18 July 2005 with Indonesia's low-cost carrier Lion Air becoming the launch customer. The first 737-900ER aircraft was expected for delivery in the first half of 2007.

The seating capacity of the -900ER model will be increased by 26 seats compared to the -900 model while retaining the same aircraft size. This translates into 215 seats in a single-aisle layout. Boeing will add two exit doors and a flat rear pressure bulkhead that will provide more room for the additional 26 seats. The new aircraft will also feature lower operating costs per trip and lower operating costs per seat.

Strengthened wings, a two-position tailskid, enhancements to the leading and trailing edge flap systems, and optional Blended Winglets and auxiliary fuel tanks, will allow the 737-900ER to accommodate higher takeoff weights and increase its range to 3,200 nautical miles (5,900 km), making it comparable to the 737-800's range. Two CFM56-7B turbofan engines will power the newest 737 and will provide economic advantages over the competition such as the Airbus A321.

Boeing announced a new business jet based on the Next-Generation 737-900ER airliner offering more spacious cabin than BBJ and BBJ 2 jets during Dubai Air Show in November 2005. Boeing expected to name this new aircraft the BBJ 3 after receiving its launch order. It will offer 104 square meters of cabin space and fitted with up to five auxiliary fuel tanks the aircraft will have a maximum range of 4,765 nautical miles (8,825 km).

On September 1, 2006, the first Boeing 737-900ER took to the skies over Washington state. Certification by American and European authorities is expected in early 2007 and the entry into revenue service with Lion Air was scheduled for the Spring 2007.

On 16 October 2006 Boeing launched the BBJ3 based on the 737-900ER airliner which had already won two orders from undisclosed customers. BBJ3 is the largest member of the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) family offering 104 square meters of cabin space. Fitted with eight fuel auxiliary tanks the BBJ3 maximum range is 5,475 nautical miles. To date Boeing has sold 114 BBJs to customer's all over the world. As of May 2007, Boeing had sold 107 BBJs, 15 BBJ 2s, and three BBJ 3s.
