Industry Boeing delivered 763 aircraft in 2017
US aircraft manufacturer Boeing has announced the delivery of 763 commercial aircraft in 2017.
In a press release Boeing stated it delivered more commercial airplanes than any manufacturer for the sixth consecutive year and set an industry record with 763 deliveries in 2017, driven by high output of the B737 and B787 jets.
Boeing reached a new high on the 737 program as it raised production to 47 airplanes a month during the year and began delivering the new 737 MAX, contributing to a record 529 deliveries, including 74 of the MAX variety. On the 787 Dreamliner program, Boeing delivered 163 aircraft in 2017.
"The record-setting performance is a testament to our employees and supplier partners who continue to innovate new ways to design, build and deliver the most fuel-efficient airplanes to customers around the world," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Kevin McAllister.
