Posted 7 January 2014 · Add Comment

Boeing set a company record in 2013 for the most commercial airplanes delivered in a single year with 648, while the company's unfilled commercial orders stood at 5,080 at the end of the year - also a new company record.



Boeing also booked 1,531 gross commercial orders in 2013, a new company record and 1,355 net commercial orders in 2013, the second-largest number in the company's history.

“With solid execution on our numerous production rate increases, the Boeing team performed extremely well in 2013,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Ray Conner. “We delivered more advanced, fuel-efficient airplanes to our customers than ever before, and it’s a great example of what our team can accomplish.”

In 2013, three programmes set records for deliveries in a single year:
• The 737 programme delivered 440 Next-Generation 737s
• The 777 programme delivered 98 airplanes
• The 787 programme delivered 65 Dreamliners, now flying with 16 customers around the world

With the higher production rates achieved in 2013, all three Boeing Commercial Airplanes production sites in Everett and Renton, Wash. and North Charleston, S.C. also delivered a record number of airplanes.

Boeing maintained its position in the twin-aisle market continued in 2013 with the launch of two new airplane programme. The 777X launched in November at the Dubai Air Show with 259 orders and commitments worth more than $95 billion at list prices. Boeing also launched the 787-10 Dreamliner at the Paris Air Show in June.

“The year ahead will be exciting as we prepare to deliver the first 787-9, continue the design work on our newest programs – the 737 MAX, 787-10 and 777X – while increasing our production rates on the 737,” said Conner. “We’ll remain focused on meeting our customer commitments by delivering the best products and services.”
