The development of the Boeing 737-500 airliner officially began in May 1987, when it became clear that the Boeing 737-200 aircraft does not meet the new requirements for noise and fuel consumption.

The new aircraft was equipped with economical turbofan engines CFM International CFM56-3B1 with 82.3 kN thrust. Subsequently, some models of the 737-500 airliner, were equipped with engines CFM56-3C-1с with thrust 89.0 kN. Due to their design, these engines had a much lower noise level than required by ICAO standards. This allowed to increase the comfort in the aircraft, as well as reduce the harmful impact on the external environment.
