B737-300 US Airways The Boeing 737 is an American short to medium range, single aisle, narrow body jet airliner. With over 7,000 ordered and over 5,000 delivered, it is the most ordered and produced commercial passenger jet of all time and has been continuously manufactured by Boeing since 1967. The 737 is now so widely used that at any given time, there are over 1,250 airborne worldwide. On average, somewhere around the world, a 737 takes off or lands every five seconds. The 737 was born out of Boeing's need to introduce a competitor in the short-range, small capacity jetliner market which had been pioneered by the Sud Aviation Caravelle, the BAC 1-11 and the Douglas DC-9. Boeing was far behind its competitors when the 737 was launched, as rival aircraft were already into flight certification. To speed up the development time, Boeing reused 60 percent of the structure and systems of the existing 707, most notably the fuselage cross section. The 737 family has nine major variants. The 737-300 was the first major change of the 737 design, incorporating improvements while also retaining commonality with previous 737. The -300 was launched in 1981 by US Airways and Southwest Airlines, becoming the base model of the 737 Classic series. The 300 series remained in production until 1999 when the last aircraft was delivered to Air New Zealand on December 17, 1999.
