Around 30 are used as corporate transports. History: The 737-100 and -200 are the first generation production models of the worlds most successful jet airliner family. The 737 was conceived as a short range small capacity airliner to round out the Boeing jet airliner family beneath the 727, 720 and 707. Announced in February 1965, the 737 was originally envisioned as a 60 to 85 seater, although following consultation with launch customer Lufthansa, a 100 seat design was settled upon. Design features included two underwing mounted turbofans and 60% structural and systems commonality with the 727, including the same fuselage cross section. The 737-100 made its first flight on April 9 1967 and entered service in February 1968. By this time however development of the larger capacity 1.93m (6ft 4in) stretched 737-200 was well advanced, and the first 737-200 flew for the first time on August 8 1967. Developments of the -200 include the -200C convertible and quick change -200QC, while an unprepared airfield kit was also offered. The definitive Advanced 737-200 appeared in 1971, featuring minor aerodynamic refinements and other improvements. Sales of the 737-200 far exceeded that of the shorter -100 and the 737-200 remained in production until 1988, by which time it had been superseded by the improved 737-300.
