The Boeing 737 Next Generation, commonly abbreviated as 737NG, is the name given to the −600/-700/-800/-900 series of the Boeing 737 airliner. It is the third generation derivative of the 737, and follows the 737 Classic (−300/-400/-500) series, which began production in the 1980s. They are short- to medium-range, narrow-body jet airliners. Produced since 1996 by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, the 737NG series includes four variants and can seat between 110 and 210 passengers.

As of July 2017, a total of 7,114 737NG aircraft have been ordered, of which 6,466 have been delivered. The remaining orders are in the -700, -700 BBJ, -800, -800 BBJ and -900ER variants. The 737NG's primary competition is with the Airbus A320 family. Upgraded and re-engined models in development as the 737 MAX series are to eventually supplant the 737NG, with the first 737 MAX delivered in 2017.
