Boeing to showcase newest jets at Farnborough Airshow

Boeing will fly the newest and largest members of its 737 MAX and 777X airplane families at the Farnborough International Airshow this month and present new tools in the push toward more sustainable and autonomous flight.

The 737-10, making its international debut, will join the 777-9 in the daily flying and static display.

The airplanes, each one the most fuel-efficient in its class, will fly to the show on a blend of sustainable aviation fuel, which Boeing sees as a major lever for further reducing carbon emissions.

The company also will unveil a modeling tool that will provide actionable insights on strategies the aviation industry can use to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

“In the four years since the last Farnborough Airshow, the world has seen the critical social and economic role that aerospace and defence plays,” said Sir Michael Arthur, president of Boeing International.

“We are excited to reconnect with our colleagues at Farnborough as we address together the need for a more sustainable future and take concrete steps to enable innovation and clean technology.

“We look forward to sharing the progress we are making.”

The 737-10 will be on the show grounds July 18-21. The largest member of the 737 MAX family will provide operators with more capacity, greater fuel efficiency and the best per-seat economics of any single-aisle airplane.

The 737 MAX family, which has received more than 3,300 net orders, leverages advanced aerodynamic design and highly-efficient engines to reduce fuel use and emissions 20% and the noise footprint 50% compared to airplanes they replace.

The 777-9, which is the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine jet, will be at the airshow July 18-20.

Based on the most successful twin-aisle airplane – the 777 – and advanced technologies from the 787 Dreamliner family, the 777-9 will deliver 10% better fuel use, emissions and operating costs than the competition.

The 777X family has more than 340 orders from leading operators around the world.
