The prototype of the Boeing 737-300 rolled out of the Renton plant on 17 January 1984, and first flew on 24 February 1984. After it received its flight certification on 14 November 1984, USAir received the first aircraft on 28 November. A very popular aircraft, Boeing received 252 orders for it in 1985, and over 1000 throughout its production. The 300 series remained in production until 1999 when the last aircraft was delivered to Air New Zealand on December 17, 1999.
