The history of the Boeing 757
Produced from 1981 to 2004, the Boeing 757 airliner is the largest single-aisle model of the American aircraft manufacturer Boeing. It is a medium-haul aircraft initially planned to replace the Boeing 727 and renew the fleet with a greater passenger capacity. Ideal for group travel, the Boeing 757 can carry between 200 and 230 passengers depending on its configuration.
