Boeing set a company record in 2014 with 723 commercial aircraft delivered. The company's sales team 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.
"I'm extremely proud of the entire Boeing team, and all of the hard work that went into delivering and selling a record number of commercial airplanes this past year," said Ray Conner, President and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
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 programmes achieved notable milestones, each for a single-year record:
The 737 programme delivered 485 aircraft, the 777 supplied 99 planes, whilst the 787 Dreamliner totalled 114, the aircraft now rolling out of the two, Everett and North Charleston, production lines at 10 per month.
When it comes to future business the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX led the way with 1,104 orders, followed by the 777 and 777X with 283 orders. www.boeing.com/commercial
