Boeing celebrates 10,000 737s

Boeing recently celebrated the 10,000th 737 to come off the production line. In honour of this achievement, let’s take a closer look at this impressive result. Southwest Airlines is the largest operator of this aircraft type and the lucky recipient of the 10,000th one, however more than 4,500 are still on order. The delivery of this aircraft has meant the 737 has broken the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the most produced commercial jet aircraft model. Incredibly, a 737 takes off or lands around the world every 1.5 seconds, on average there are more than 2,800 737s in the air at any given time and more than 22 billion people have flown on a 737.
