BOEING is to accelerate production of the Next Generation 737 in the second quarter of 2013 to an astonishing 38 aeroplanes per month. This decision comes just months after announcing a rate increase on the company's best-selling commercial jetliner from 31.5 to 35 units monthly in early 2012. All Boeing 737s are produced at the Renton plant, just outside Seattle, easily the world’s most productive aircraft factory. Key factors to the rate decision include the company's current backlog of more than 2,000 737s, plus current options that customers may well exercise and ongoing sales campaigns. The market is expected to require 21,000 single-aisle aeroplanes over the next 20 years. www.boeing.com/commercial
