Flydubai receives 7,000th 737


Boeing has delivered its 7,000th 737 to come off the production line to Dubai-based flydubai. The airplane is flydubai’s 14th Next-Generation 737-800 with the new Boeing Sky Interior.

The 737 is the most produced large commercial jet airliner in history. Boeing states that the “gap between each record delivery is shrinking” due to increasing production rates. “It took Boeing 4 years 8 months between the 4,000th and 5,000th, while the gap between the 5,000th and 6,000th delivery was 3 years and 2 months. The 7,000th delivery is just 2 years and 8 months after the 6,000th. With 737 production rates increasing incrementally to a record 42 airplanes a month in the first half of 2014 the gap will continue to close.”

Last month at the Dubai air show, flydubai signed a $170 million financing deal with MC Aviation Partners to finance two 737-800NG scheduled for delivery early next year.
