With infinite new direct-route possibilities that come with extended range, the 737 MAX is following in the footsteps of the 787 Dreamliner, 767 and 757, connecting communities and people in new and exciting ways.

For passengers, more range means more nonstop connections, and more opportunity --- opportunity to establish new friendships, keep families connected, expand business ventures, and more.  For airlines, more range means more flexibility, more fuel savings and more performance.

Boeing designed the 737 MAX family to offer extended range that would open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. Our MAX airline partners are already taking advantage of this capability, offering passengers more nonstop routes and introducing new flights between new city pairs. And future customers are already talking about their plans for many more direct connections between local points in Europe, USA and Canada that could not be economically served before the 737 MAX.
