Certified: Boeing's 737-900ER

Latest 737 Can Carry 220 Passengers Up To 3,200 NM

Given the number of 737s flying through the world's skies at any given moment, the following news was never really in doubt. Aero-News learned Thursday the newest member of Boeing Next-Generation 737 family, the 737-900ER (Extended Range), earned type certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration on April 20.

The 737 derivative incorporates an extra pair of exit doors to increase the maximum passenger capacity, a flat aft-pressure bulkhead to increase interior volume, a two-position tailskid for improved takeoff and landing capability, wing strengthening changes to accommodate the 13,500 pound maximum takeoff weight increase, and enhancements to the leading and trailing edge flap systems for improved takeoff and landing capability.

The aircraft also sports optional Blended Winglets and auxiliary fuel tanks, that increase the range of the 737-900ER to 3,200 nautical miles (5,925 km) -- in line with smaller variants of the 737NG. The airplane is certified to carry up to 220 passengers in a single-class configuration.

On July 18, 2005, Indonesia's Lion Air launched the higher capacity, longer range Next-Generation 737-900ER with an order for 30 airplanes. Airlines have ordered more than 100 737-900ERs to date, according to Boeing.
