Other Names for the Boeing 717-200 Operators
The Boeing 717-200 jet aircraft has a few different names that it is called by. If you are learning more about the aircraft you will find the following names for the airplane:

  • Boeing B-717-200 Operators: the "B-717" or "B-717-200" name is used by many, including the FAA, to refer to the aircraft.
  • Boeing B712 Operators: B712 is the ICAO code for the airplane that is used by air traffic controllers, airlines and others.
  • Boeing 717 Operators (with out the -200): Many call the 717-200 just the 717, which is the main aircraft program the plane is in (the only plane in the 717 program). "717" is also the IATA code for the jet. Boeing's KC-135 tanker was the first aircraft that was called the 717 by Boeing, so Boeing gave the 717 jet the 717-200 model name.
