Boeing opens 737 interior configuration studio
Boeing has debuted its new 737 Configuration Studio, a new facility where airline customers can choose their jetliner interiors. The 20,000 ft² (1,900 m²) studio is located in Renton, Wash. near the factory where 42 737s are produced per month. Similar to the 787 Dreamliner Gallery, the 737 Configuration Studio provides a private and welcoming showroom environment to assist Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX customers with the design and configuration of new airplane interiors. More than two dozen major interior configuration introductions are expected over the next two years. To help 737 customers select among them, the studio presents views of suppliers’ products side by side in one location. Customers can see, touch and experience choices in galleys, seats and in-flight entertainment. They also can select interior colors and decors that highlight and support their brand.
