Description: The Boeing 757 is a single-aisle, medium-sized, low operating costs, twin-engine airliner suitable for short- and medium-range routes. It also features high fuel efficiency, low noise level and increased passenger comfort. Rolls Royce's RB211-535 and Pratt & Whitney PW2000 are the two high-bypass-ratio turbofans currently available to power this aircraft.

The Boeing 757-300 is a stretched second generation derivative of 757-200 with two body extensions to accommodate up to 280 passengers and additional cargo as well. It can be powered by PW2040, PW2043, RB211-535E4 or RB211-535E4B engines. It covers short to medium range routes. The first single-aisle, high seating capacity 757-300 jetliner was delivered to Condor Airlines in 1999 and the last delivery occurred in 2004.

In 2004, Boeing announced its intention to cut off 757 production favoring the next generation 737 and the cutting-edge 7E7 Dreamliner. On October 28, 2004, Boeing delivered the 10,050th and final 757, a Shanghai Airlines 757-200, at the company's factory in Renton, Washington.
