Boeing 737-300 US Air airplane model. The 737-300 is the first of the three-member second generation CFM56 powered 737 family, which also comprises the stretched 737-400 and shortened 737-500. The success of the second-generation Boeing 737 family pushed sales of the mark to over 3000, a record for a commercial jetliner. Boeing announced it was developing the 737-300 in March 1981. This new variant started off as a simple stretch over the 737-200 but Boeing decided to adopt the CFM International CFM56 high bypass turbofan (jointly developed by General Electric and SNECMA) to reduce fuel consumption and comply with the then proposed International Civil Aviation Organization Stage 3 noise limits. Despite the all-new engines and the 2.64m (104in) fuselage stretch, the 737-300 retains 80% airframe spares commonality and shares the same ground handling equipment with the 737-200.
