Recognition similarity

  • ICAO Code: B733

    Notes: Similar to the 737-300 and the 737-400. The 737-500 is shorter and has one over-wing emergency exit.

  • ICAO Code: B736

    Notes: Similar very short fuselage. 737-600 has wider wingspan and visibly higher top of the tail.

735

Accommodation

Flightcrew of two and typical 108 passengers in two classes, 138 in an all tourist class configuration.

Notes

Short range airliner. In service since 1990. Short fuselage version of 737-300 with better field and climb performance.

Alternative names

  • BOEING 737-500
