Boeing hits delivery target
Published in Al-Ahram Weekly on 20 - 01 - 2011

BOEING manufacturer has revealed that it had 462 commercial airplane deliveries in 2010, meeting company guidance of approximately 460 deliveries during the year. Boeing posted 530 net commercial orders for the year as air carriers transition from economic recovery to expansion. Boeing Commercial Airplanes maintain a strong order base of 3,443 unfilled orders.
"With 376 deliveries in 2010, the Next- Generation 737 set a company delivery record for the second consecutive year," said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737 is the industry's most in-demand airplane with 486 net orders as carriers continue to rely on its superior economics, versatility, and continuous performance enhancements."
The 777 led Boeing's twin-aisle programs with 74 deliveries and 46 net orders in 2010 as the airplane continues to rank at the top of operator, investor, and frequent traveler polls for its efficiency and passenger comfort.
During 2010, Boeing announced a series of production rate increases throughout its product line to meet increasing airplane demand from carriers worldwide. The Next-Generation 737 production rate will grow to 35 per month in early 2012 and 38 per month in the second quarter of 2013. The 777 production rate will rise from five to seven per month in mid-2011 and grow to 8.3 per month in the first quarter of 2013. The 747-8 Freighter is slated for first delivery mid-year and first delivery of the 747- 8 Intercontinental is planned for late 2011. The 787 Dreamliner continues in flight test.
