General introduction

The Boeing 757-200 has been by far the most popular 757 variant, with a total of 913 built over the course of its manufacture. The efficient turbofan engines allow take-offs from relatively high altitudes and short runways, and with a maximum range of 6,300 km (3,900 mi), they are well-suited for both domestic and transcontinental flights. The wings are optimised to reduce drag, thereby increasing fuel efficiency.
