Boeing has rolled out the first Boeing 737 MAX 200, a variant based on the successful 737 MAX 8 that can accommodate up to 200 seats.

While the heart of the single-aisle market will remain at 160 seats, the 737 MAX 200 will provide the European low-cost carrier with up to 11 more seats of potential revenue and up to 5 percent lower operating costs than the 737 MAX 8, driving economic growth and increasing access to air travel.

Based on the 737 MAX 8 airframe, the 737 MAX 200 can accommodate up to 200 seats by incorporating a mid-exit door increasing the exit limit. The airframe is 2.2 meters longer than the A320neo, giving customers more flexibility and space in the cabin.

Ryanair, the launch customer for the variant, has chosen a 197 passenger seating configuration, with a 30-inch seat pitch.

A new generation of non-reclining slimline seats and lavatory designs will be key to achieve the dense seat configuration.

The airline has 135 total firm orders for the type with deliveries due to start in the first half of 2019.

Currently operating more than 300 Next-Generation 737-800s, Ryanair took delivery of its first 737 in 1994, and now operates the largest fleet of Boeing airplanes in Europe.
