Boeing has opened a new 737 customer Configuration Studio near its Renton production facility in Washington state.
Modelled on the similar 787 Dreamliner Gallery, Boeing says 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.”
“Our customers make a large investment when they choose their interiors,” Beverly Wyse, Boeing’s vice president and general manager, 737 program said in a statement. “This new studio offers one-stop shopping, eliminating the need for them to fly around the world to meet with different suppliers.”
The studio will eventually offer more than two dozen major interior configuration and lighting options are expected over the next two years, and these can be presented to customers side-by-side in the one location.
