New Boeing Airplane Offers 'Range' of Possibilities

Boeing Commercial Airplanes will work with customers to understand the appropriate range parameters for the new airplane it's designing to answer the need for faster air travel. Under consideration are ranges of 6,000 nautical miles (11,112 kilometers) to 10,000 nautical miles (18,520 kilometers). If airlines and Boeing agree to pursue the higher scope of range possibilities, the new airplane will open entirely new routes for non-stop, faster service. If the decision is made to stay within ranges currently available - 6,000 nautical miles (11,112 kilometers) to 8,810 nautical miles (16,316 kilometers) -- the new airplane still will offer significant time savings to passengers.
