by Traveleads | January 18, 2019 | In The Air Latest News

Boeing delivered 69 737 aicraft in December and set a new annual record of 806 deliveries in 2018, surpassing its previous record of 763 deliveries in 2017.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Kevin McAllister stated:

“Boeing raised the bar again in 2018 thanks to our teammates’ incredible focus on meeting customer commitments, and continuously improving quality and productivity.”

“ In a dynamic year, our production discipline and our supplier partners helped us build and deliver more airplanes than ever before to satisfy the strong demand for air travel across the globe.”

With a seven-year order backlog, Boeing increased production of the popular 737 in the middle of 2018 to 52 aircraft per month. Nearly half of the year’s 580 737 deliveries were from the more fuel-efficient and longer-range MAX family, including the first MAX 9 aircraft.

At the same time, Boeing continued to build the 787 Dreamliner at the highest production rate for twin-aisle planes to support high demand for the super-efficient jet.

The Dreamliner program finished with 145 deliveries for the year.

Deliveries of various 777, 767 and 747-8 models rounded out the total of 806 planes for the year.
