The Boeing 737 is a short- to medium-range, twin-engine narrow-body jet airliner. Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engine airliner derived from Boeing's 707 and 727, the 737 has nine variants with the -600, -700, -800, and -900 currently in production.

Originally envisioned in 1964, the 737 first flew in 1967,[4] and entered airline service in February 1968.[4][5] The 737 is Boeing's only single-aisle, narrow-body airliner currently in production, sometimes serving markets previously filled by 707, 727, 757, DC-9, and MD-80/90 airliners.

The 737 has been continuously manufactured by Boeing since 1967 with 6,605 aircraft delivered and 2,173 orders yet to be fulfilled as of November 2010.[1] The 737 series is the best-selling jet airliner in history.[4] There are on average 1,250 737s airborne at any given time, with one departing or landing somewhere every five seconds.[6] The 737 competes primarily with the Airbus A320 family.[7]
