The Boeing 737-700ER

The 737-700ER (Extended Range) is an increased gross weight version of the 737-700. Launched Jan. 31, 2006, with an order conversion for two airplanes from ANA (All Nippon Airways), the 737-700ER has the longest range capability of any commercial 737 family member. Aerodynamic and structural changes initially made for the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) allow the 737-700ER to profitably serve nonstop, long-range point-to-point routes. Entry into service is scheduled for early 2007.
