SEATTLE -- China Southern Airlines will take delivery next week of the 4,000th Next-Generation 737, a milestone celebrated at Boeing Field on Friday by workers and executives from both companies.

The Next-Generation 737's success is the result of years of expertise that thousands of employees continue to build into every Boeing 737 used in private, government and commercial service, said Beverly Wyse, vice president and general manager of the 737 program. It is an incredible milestone to be delivering our 4,000th Next-Generation 737. We thank China Southern Airlines and all our customers who have made the 737 the world's most popular jetliner.
