That is an increase of around 41 percent compared to the previous year, as the US group announced on Tuesday in Arlington. However, Boeing was still well behind the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer Airbus from Europe, which had already surpassed this mark in the autumn. Meanwhile, Boeing brought in new orders for 935 machines. After deducting cancellations, there were still 774.
Above all, Boeing got more medium-haul jets of the type 737 Max from the yard, which after two fatal crashes from March 2019 were not allowed to take off worldwide for a long time. This model series alone accounted for 387 deliveries.
Boeing delivered 31 of the long-haul 787 “Dreamliner” jet, more than twice as many as in the previous year, after a delivery stop of more than a year expired in August.
