Thanks to its high output of Boeing 737 and 787
aircraft, Boeing managed to deliver a record 763 commercial airplanes in
The company also grew its
backlog with 912 net orders, reflecting healthy demand for its
single-aisle and twin-aisle airplanes.
Boeing raised 737 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 136 aircraft in the year.
"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.
On the orders front, 71 customers placed the 912
net orders, valued at $134.8 billion at list prices. The total
extends Boeing's backlog to a record 5,864 airplanes – at year end
– which is equal to about seven years of production.
"The strong sales activity reflects continuing
strong demand for the 737 MAX family, including the
ultra-efficient MAX 10 variant that we launched last year, and the
market's increasing preference for Boeing's family of twin-aisle
jets," said McAllister. "Our planned production increases over the
coming years are designed to satisfy this robust demand."
In 2017, the 787 Dreamliner family racked up
nearly 100 net orders and the 777 family captured 60 net orders,
