The Boeing 737 is a narrow-body aircraft produced by Boeing Commercial Airplanes as of 1966. Boeing identified a need for a short-haul aircraft to complement the larger 727 airliner, utilised for short and thin routes. A similar concept was already envisioned by the company, which then served as the base for the new aircraft design. The most significant development from the initial design was the relocated engines, which were now mounted on the wings, rather than at the rear fuselage. This benefited the aircraft in a number of ways, allowing for a lighter wing structure, added cabin space for passenger seating, as well as improved aerodynamics. Boeing introduced the 737-800 in 1994, which replaced the 737-400. The first production aircraft was delivered in 1998, soon after Boeing and McDonnell Douglas merged. The 737-800 filled the gap created by the discontinued MD-80 and MD-90 in the aviation market, with the largest operator currently being Ryanair.
