Boeing 757-300 is a mid-range passenger aircraft developed by the American company Boeing. The aircraft is a modern modification of the Boeing 757-200 aircraft. In September 1996, at the international aerospace exhibition in Farnborough (Great Britain), Boeing announced the start of the development of the 757-300 aircraft. It will differ from the original model by an elongated 7.1 m fuselage (as a result of which the maximum number of seats will increase to 289), an increased take-off mass of 123 tons and a flight range of 6500 km.
Deliveries of the 757-300 aircraft began in March 1999. The first customer is the German company Condor, which purchased 24 aircraft. Arkia Israeli Airlines also ordered the planes (deliveries of the first two planes began in early 2000) and Icelandair (two planes are scheduled for 2001). The aircraft uses the EFIS digital avionics system manufactured by the American company Rockwell-Collins, which has six color multifunction displays. The passenger cabin is made more comfortable, similar to the cockpit of the Next-Generation 737 series aircraft. A similar complex is used on Boeing 767 aircraft. It has been mass-produced since 1997.
