The Boeing 717-200 commercial jet is a mainline jet that has range of 1430 to 2,060 nautical miles. The Boeing 717-200 range depends on the version of the aircraft. Boeing produced a Basic Gross Weight (BGW) and High Gross Weight (HGW) version of the aircraft. The difference between the two Boeing 717 versions is that the HGW version has extra fuel tanks installed, this allows the jet to have a longer range. The high gross weight version has a lower cargo capacity because the extra fuel tanks take up space in the cargo area. More information on the difference between the BGW and HGW models are located on the Boeing 717-200 specifications page. Below is an overview on the range of the two Boeing 717-200 versions. A range map for the BGW version is also located below.
