In 2011 Boeing has announced program that contemplates increasing fuel efficiency of the Boeing 737 Max by 16% as compared to Airbus A320ceo and by 4% as compared to Airbus A320neo.
Achievement of the goals required introduction of changes in the airplane’s construction, first of all to increase aerodynamic efficiency of the aircraft. Configuration of Boeing 737 Max was approved in 2013. The cost of modernization program had to reach 1.8 billions USD but taking into account serious work on adaptation of the engines CFM LEAP for this airplane the price has reached 3 billions USD.
