The single-aisle Boeing 757 is in a class by itself when it comes to economics and airport performance. The 757 has the lowest operating cost per seat-mile of any single-aisle jetliner in its class and a lower cost per trip than any twin-aisle airplane.
The Boeing 757-200 is known for exceptional fuel efficiency, low noise levels, increased passenger comfort and top operating performance. The 757 offers versatility by reducing airport congestion; it can fly both long- and short-range routes and its broad use effectively lends itself to "hub-and-spoke" planning.
The 757 has carried more than 1.3 billion passengers, more than four times the population of the United States and Canada combined.
In 18 years of operation, the 757 fleet has flown the equivalent of nearly 25,000 roundtrips between the Earth and the Moon.
There are about 626,000 parts in a 757. About 600,000 bolts and rivets fasten those parts together. The length of all wires in the twinjet is about 60 miles (100 KM).
Airlines fly the versatile 757 on a wide variety of routes. The twinjet is used to serve city pairs as far as 4,281 statute miles (6,890 KM) and as close as 65 statute miles (105 KM).
The common 757/767 cockpit type-rating permits flight crews trained on the 757 to also fly the 767.
