The following is a list of accidents and incidents involving the Boeing 737 family of jet airliners, including the Boeing 737 Original (737-100/200), Boeing 737 Classic (737-300/-400/-500), Boeing 737 Next Generation (737-600/-700/-800/-900) and Boeing 737 MAX (737 MAX 7/8/200/9/10) series of aircraft.

The 737 first entered airline service in February 1968;[1] the 10,000th aircraft entered service in March 2018.[2] The first accident involving a 737 was on July 19, 1970, when a 737-200 was damaged beyond repair during an aborted takeoff, with no fatalities; the first fatal accident occurred on December 8, 1972, when United Airlines Flight 553 crashed while attempting to land, with 45 (43 onboard plus 2 on the ground) fatalities; and, as of August 2022, the greatest loss of life aboard a 737 occurred on October 29, 2018, when Lion Air Flight 610, a 737 MAX 8, crashed into the Java Sea shortly after takeoff, with 189 fatalities.

Several accidents of the 737 Original and Classic series were due to a design flaw in a power control unit (PCU) causing uncommanded rudder movement under thermal shock: see Boeing 737 rudder issues for further info.

In October 2018 and March 2019, two fatal crashes of 737 MAX aircraft led to a worldwide grounding of all 737 MAX aircraft until December 2020.

The source of the ignition energy for the explosion could not be determined with certainty, but the most likely source was an explosion originating at the center wing tank fuel pump as a result of running the pump in the presence of metal shavings and a fuel/air mixture.[103] One flight attendant died, incident occurred prior to passenger boarding.[104]
  • January 16, 2002 – Garuda Indonesia Flight 421, using a 737-300, en route from Lombok to Yogyakarta, was forced to make an emergency landing on the Solo River. One person, a stewardess, died in the accident.

  • January 23, 2006 – Continental Airlines flight 1515, a Boeing 737-500, was set to depart from El Paso International Airport for George Bush Intercontinental Airport, when the right engine suffered an oil leak. The Captain was asked by the mechanics to run the engine up to 70% for three minutes. Shortly after the power was increased, one of the mechanics stood up, stepped into the inlet hazard zone, and died instantly when he was ingested into the engine.[106][107][108]
  • June 15, 2006 – TNT Airways Flight 352, using a 737-300 freighter and operating from Liège Airport in Belgium to London Stansted Airport in the United Kingdom had to divert to East Midlands Airport due to bad weather. On final approach, the autopilot was disengaged for a short period. The aircraft touched down off the runway to the left, resulting in the right main landing gear being detached and the right wing tip and engine scraping the ground. The pilots managed to lift off again and subsequently made an emergency diversion to Birmingham International Airport, where a landing was performed on the remaining two landing gear, during which the aircraft scraped on its nose and right engine. There were no injuries. The cause of the crash was determined to be a poorly timed message from local air traffic control which the pilot misinterpreted, causing him to descend too quickly. The team of pilots were said by the airline to have managed the situation with skill once the error had been detected, but were dismissed from service with the company as a result of the incident.[109]
  • October 3, 2006 – Turkish Airlines Flight 1476, using a 737-400, was hijacked by Hakan Ekinci in Greek airspace. All 107 passengers and six crew members on board survived. The aircraft landed safely at Brindisi Airport in Italy.
