Boeing 737 MAX 9


The Boeing 737 MAX 9 is a modernized version of the Boeing 737-900ER. Compared to the 737 NG (Next Generation) series, all MAX versions have even more efficient engines and comparatively higher passenger capacity. The 737 MAX 9 has a range of about 6500 km and is certified for up to 220 passengers. This makes it comparable to the Airbus A320neo / A321neo. The maiden flight of the MAX 9 took place on 13 April 2017.
