In just a few weeks, our Renton factory will deliver our first 737 at the increased rate of 38 airplanes per month. But in the meantime, we’ve delivered another milestone airplane.
Our 7,500th 737 was delivered to Malindo Air.
The 7,500th 737 is now in the hands of Malindo Air. The airline will use the Next-Generation 737-900ER, which comes with the Boeing Sky Interior, to launch its low-fare service.

The numbers coming out of our 737 factory never cease to amaze me. It seems like just yesterday that I was talking about our 10,000th 737 order— and now we stand at well over 10,500 total orders.
For all 737 models, there are approximately 24,000 scheduled flights per day. This means that nearly a third of all commercial flights are on 737s.

This airplane just keeps getting better. And with the 737 MAX on the way, there’s no sign of slowing down.
