Boeing has notably increased its production output, rising to 47 copies of 737 per month.

The american company Boeing delivered a record number of commercial aircraft in 2017, and has recorded a jump of 36.5 % of its net orders, confirming a year that has seen its market capitalisation soar to 90 %.

 

Throughout the year, the airline customers of the group Chicago have acknowledged receipt of 763 units, a figure up 2 % year on year. Boeing exceeds the record of deliveries of 762 devices established in 2015 and reaches its goal which was to deliver between the 760 and 765 devices.

The market monitor generally, more particularly the supply, because they are the barometer of the financial health of an aeronautical group, an airline paying traditionally when it takes possession of the device, with a consequent impact on the turnover of the manufacturer.

 

On the plan of the orders, Boeing has logged 912 net orders last year, an increase of 36.5 % year on year, valued at 134,8 billion at list prices. The total order backlog amounted at 31 December to 5864 aircraft to produce, against 5715 at the end of 2016.

 

The action Boeing took a total of 1.55 % to 314,85 $ to 10: 20 a.m. to Wall Street.

 

Boeing is expected to significantly ahead of its european rival Airbus for the deliveries, because he has experienced difficulties with the aircraft engines manufactured by United Technologies. Airbus will announce its figures on January 15.
