The Boeing 737-700 passenger airliner is a representative of the Next Generation series, which is a member of the Boeing 737 family of twin-engine, narrow-body aircraft designed for short and medium flights. The Boeing 737-700 was designed directly to replace the Boeing 737-300. In terms of the number of seats, the Boeing 737-700 matches its predecessor. The two-class cabin layout can accommodate 126 passenger seats. With the maximum seating arrangement, the Boeing 737-700 can take on board 149 passengers. The Boeing 737-700 also became the first aircraft to be produced under the 737 Next Generation program. Today, the direct competitor for the Boeing 737-700 is a narrow-body aircraft Airbus A319.

Officially, the start of work on the 737 Next Generation series aircraft was announced in November 1993. The first customer for the new series of aircraft was Southwest Airlines, which in January 1994 made a pre-order for 63 new aircraft. The Boeing 737-700 was originally designated Boeing 737-300X, indicating a relationship with the Boeing 737-300.

The new aircraft was equipped with turboprop, bypass engines СFМ International CFM56-7B20s, with a thrust of about 91.6 kN.

Boeing 737-700, also got a new tail unit, and the new wing, the scope of which was to 5,44 meters more than the Boeing 737-300.

The Boeing 737-700 used EFIS digital avionics manufactured by the American company Honeywell. To display all the necessary information about the flight, six multifunctional LCD displays are used. On the plane, it also became possible to install a collimator indicator on the windshield, the so-called Head-Up Display (HUD) or HUD. The passenger cabin of the aircraft was designed on the basis of the cabin of the Boeing 757. Most of the other details have remained practically unchanged from the Boeing 737-300.

The finished Boeing 737-700 rolled out of the production hangar on December 7, 1996. The first flight of this airliner took place on February 9, 1997. In November of the same year, the aircraft received a certificate and a month later it was put into operation.

Subsequently, on the basis of the Boeing 737-700 passenger airliner, the company made various modifications. For example, airlines were offered an administrative version of the aircraft, the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), designed to carry up to 50 passengers in a comfortable cabin over a distance of 11000 kilometers. This aircraft uses a Boeing 737-700 fuselage, with a wing from a larger Boeing 737-800. It also has additional fuel tanks.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes also produced a convertible version of the airliner, designated Boeing 737-700C. This modification, if necessary, allows you to quickly convert a passenger aircraft into a cargo transporter.

On January 31, 2006, work began on a new aircraft modification, the Boeing 737-700ER (Extended Range), with an increased flight range. The main customer of this model was the Japanese airline All Nippon Airways. The competing aircraft of this version is the Airbus A319LR. The Boeing 737-700ER uses technical solutions that were previously used on the Boeing Business Jet. In particular, it is equipped with additional fuel tanks and an improved wing, which made it possible to increase the flight range. In a two-class configuration, this aircraft can accommodate 126 passenger seats.

On the basis of the Boeing 737-700, aircraft were also produced for the air force. These aircraft include the Boeing C-40 Clipper military transport aircraft and the Boeing 737 AEW & C long-range radar aircraft.

Today, Boeing 737-700 aircraft and their modifications continue to be produced and supplied to many airlines around the world.
