Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has released details of its planned aerospace and defense showcase at the 2023 Paris Air Show.
Boeing will showcase a range highly efficient commercial jets, critical defense platforms, customer-focused services and innovative autonomous technologies at the upcoming event.
Air Show overview
The 737-10, the largest member of the MAX family, will join the new 777-9 in the show’s flying display. Meanwhile, Boeing subsidiary Wisk Aero debuts its all-electric, autonomous 6th generation air taxi – which the company plans to certify for commercial passenger operations.
With a strong commitment toward a sustainable aerospace industry, Boeing will demonstrate its “Cascade” Climate Impact Model, a data-modeling tool recently made available to the public to provide actionable insights towards the aviation industry’s goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
The company will also debut a new tool that tracks sustainable aviation fuel capacity around the world, and provide an update on delivering 100% SAF-compatible airplanes by 2030.
Rundown of events and programs
Below are some of the events and programs Boeing will highlight during the air show.
The Boeing 737-10 and 777-9 will debut at Le Bourget on June 18.
The 737-10 will provide operators with more capacity, greater fuel efficiency and the best per-seat economics of any single-aisle airplane.

The 737 MAX family has received more than 3,500 net orders, and its advanced aerodynamic design and highly-efficient engines reduce fuel use and emissions 20% and the noise footprint 50% compared to airplanes it replaces.
The 777-9, the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine jet, is based on the most successful twin-aisle family – the 777 – with advanced technologies from the 787 Dreamliner. The 777-9 will deliver 10% better fuel use, emissions and operating costs than the competition.
At exhibit B337, Boeing will showcase the 777X passenger interior in an immersive display highlighting its wider cabin, spacious and flexible architecture and options designed to create an unparalleled experience.
