Boeing unveils the 737 MAX 9

Following a rigorous certification process, the FAA granted Boeing an Amended Type Certificate for the 737 MAX 8, verifying the design complies with required aviation regulations and is safe and reliable.

"We are very comfortable with the ability of our shops to accommodate the higher rates", Keith Leverkuhn says.

Boeing has been pitching the model code-named 737 MAX 10X to airlines, as the most efficient single-aisle jetliner in the business - a claim disputed by Airbus.

The first such aircraft was officially debuted this Tuesday, when it was rolled out in front of employees at the Boeing plant in Renton, Washington.

Several leasing company officials and other delegates at the conference, which can set the tone for new developments, said Boeing may penalise sales of its own 737 MAX 9 with the new plane, but would struggle to dent sales of the A321neo itself.




The MAX 9 model is nearly nine feet longer than the MAX 8's 129 feet 8 inches, and it carries 178 passengers in two classes compared to the MAX 8's 162 in a similar configuration.

The 737 MAX's major rival, the Airbus A320 neo had achieved its joint FAA and EASA certification in November 2015 and began commercial flight operations in January 2016.

In case, the company was to launch the jet, it would be one of five variants of its upgraded single-aisle 737 jet family.

Meanwhile, Boeing continues to study and discuss with customers possibly adding to the 737 MAX family a 737 MAX 10 version, which would be longer and have an even higher seat capacity than the 737 MAX 9, which will be able to seat a maximum of 220 passengers.

It is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,600 orders to date from 83 customers worldwide.
