Southwest Airlines Begins Boeing 737 MAX 8 Service
Posted: 2017 Oct 12
 
Southwest Airlines has become the first airline in North America to offer a scheduled service with the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
 
Earlier this month, the carrier's inaugural MAX 8 flight departed Dallas’ Love Field and flew to Houston, one of the carrier’s original markets.
 
“The MAX 8 is the future of the Southwest fleet, and we look forward to connecting Customers to the important moments in their lives through our legendary service delivered with this more fuel-efficient aircraft designed to produce less noise in the communities we serve,” Chairman & CEO Gary Kelly said from aboard the inaugural scheduled flight.
 
The carrier has introduced nine 737 MAX 8s in service and expects to end the year with 14 of them. 
 
The airline has 200 firm orders for a combination of MAX 7 and MAX 8.
 
Southwest has been the world’s launch customer for the Boeing 737-300, -500, -700, and MAX series of the world’s best-selling narrow-body airplane.
