BOEING 737 MAX 9 AWARDED FAA CERTIFICATION
Friday, February 16, 2018
SEATTLE -- The Boeing 737 MAX 9 has received an amended type certificate (ATC) from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), officially certifying the airplane for commercial service.

This certification marks the culmination of a successful flight test program that began in March 2017 with two Boeing flight test airplanes. The FAA certification affirms that the airplane's handling, systems and overall performance all comply with required aviation regulations.

Boeing is now in the final stages of preparing the MAX 9 for its first delivery to launch customer Lion Air Group. The MAX 9 is designed for a capacity of up to 220 passengers and a maximum range of 3,550 nautical miles. With three additional seat rows compared to the 737 MAX 8, this model provides operators added capacity while providing lower fuel burn with CFM International LEAP-1B engines and new winglets.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating more than 4,300 orders from 93 customers worldwide.
