The American manufacturer closed another successful year and released its figures.
Boeing published a report with figures obtained during 2017. The manufacturer delivered 763 aircraft, beating its main rival for the sixth consecutive year.
Meanwhile, the manufacturer received about 912 orders from 71 customers, valued at $ 134,8 billion dollars. The total expands Boeing’s backlog to a record 5,864 aircraft at the end of the year, equivalent to about seven years of production.
Much of Boeing’s sales growth is attributed to the strong demand for 737 MAX family aircraft, including the ultra-efficient MAX 10 variant launched last year, and the growing market preference for the family of double-aisle aircraft. Boeing achieved a greater production of their families 737 and 787, with 529 and 136 deliveries respectively.
