Boeing Commercial Airplanes achieves milestone year for deliveries, orders in 2014
Boeing set a record for the most commercial airplanes delivered in a single year at 723 in 2014, breaking the company record for a second consecutive year. The company also booked 1,432 net orders, carrying a value of US$232.7bn at list prices, breaking the previous all-time high set in 2007. Boeing’s unfilled commercial orders stood at 5,789 at the end of the year – also a new company all-time high. All three Boeing Commercial Airplanes production sites – Everett and Renton, Wash. and North Charleston, S.C. – each set new site records for airplane deliveries. In 2014, three individual commercial programs achieved notable milestones, each a single-year record:
737 program delivered 485 of the popular single-aisle airplanes
777 program delivered 99 airplanes
787 program delivered 114 Dreamliners, including the first 787-9 to launch customer Air New Zealand and first direct deliveries to 13 airline customers.
Of the 1,432 net commercial orders Boeing booked in 2014, the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX led the way with 1,104 orders, followed by the 777 and 777X with 283 orders.
