Boeing closes 2013 with record deliveries


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

In 2013, three programs set records for deliveries in single year:

• The 737 programme delivered 440 Next-Generation 737s

• The 777 programme delivered 98 aircraft

• 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, Washinton and North Charleston, South Carolina also delivered a record number of airplanes. Boeing’s twin-aisle market continued to develop in 2013 with the launch of two new programmes: The B777X launched in November at the Dubai Air Show with 259 orders and commitments worth more than US$95 billion at list prices and the B787-10 Dreamliner at the Paris Air Show in June.
