Boeing 737 MAX 7 to Make Airshow Debut at Farnborough 2018

Boeing plans to reveal its vision of the future of air and space travel at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow in England next week.

From hypersonic travel to the future of autonomous flight to manned space flight, Boeing will visually present the innovations that will revolutionize the way humans travel around the world and into space.

The company will also highlight its extensive portfolio of commercial and defense products as well as its full range of support services.

"Boeing is leading the drive to innovate and win with the clear vision that 'the future is built here'," said Chairman, President and CEO, Dennis Muilenburg. "We come to Farnborough building on the foundation of an exceptionally consistent and strong year, and do so on the first anniversary of our services business. We are excited to highlight these future technologies as well as our core product offerings with a unique new exhibit that will be open throughout the show."

Visitors to FIA18 will be able to immerse themselves in a large 360-degree theater and board next-generation aircraft through virtual and mixed reality devices. The interactive exhibit showcases Boeing's latest family of aircraft and services, and gives visitors a first look at what the company is developing in its second century of aerospace innovation. The exhibit (P7) will be located opposite Hall 1.

On the airfield, the 737 MAX 7, which is scheduled to enter service in 2019, will make its airshow debut with flying displays from 16-19 July. Technology advancements allow the MAX 7 to fly 1,000 nautical miles farther and carry more passengers than its predecessor, the 737-700, while having 18% lower fuel costs per seat.

Boeing's flying display will also include a Biman Bangladesh 787-8. Since 2011, almost 700 Dreamliners have been delivered to operators, flying more than 250 million people while saving an estimated 25 billion pounds of fuel.

Other commercial airplanes on display at the show include an Air Italy 737 MAX 8, a Qatar Airways 777-300ER, CargoLogicAir (see video below) and Qatar Airways 747-8 Freighters, and a Royal Air Maroc 767 Boeing Converted Freighter, which will be at the Cargo Village from July 16-18. Boeing is also participating in the Cargo Village to showcase its family of freighters and lifecycle commitment through Services.

The U.S. Department of Defense is scheduled to display several Boeing platforms, including the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, the CH-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopter, the F-15E Strike Eagle and the C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft.

Senior Boeing leaders at the show will include Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg, Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Enterprise Performance & Strategy Greg Smith, and the heads of the company's three business units: Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Kevin McAllister; Boeing Defense, Space & Security President and CEO Leanne Caret; Boeing Global Services President and CEO Stan Deal.
