Boeing delivered 528 commercial aircraft in 2023, 10% growth

The 737 MAX accounted for one in every four jets delivered by the US planemaker. Widebody 787 Dreamliner more than doubled number of planes shipped to customers

Boeing had a 10% increase in the number of commercial aircraft delivered in 2023, compared to 2022. According to data made available by the company on Tuesday, 528 jets were sent to customers, 23 of them for military use, 45 freighters and 460 configured to carry passengers.

The 737 MAX, as expected, led deliveries with 387 aircraft, or 3.5% more than in 2022. The small increase occurred after problems with the manufacturing of the narrow-body jet, which frustrated the company’s plans.

Even so, in addition to the nine P-8A Poseidon delivered, Boeing reached almost 400 aircraft shipped, very close to its original goal.

If the MAX underperformed, the widebody 787 Dreamliner had a year of recovery, with 73 aircraft delivered, 136% more than two years ago.

In December alone, 11 jets were delivered, most of the 787-9 model, which reached 40 deliveries this year, or four times more than in 2022.

The cargo segment was stable in 2023, with 45 deliveries, just one plane more than in the previous one. By maintaining the same 18 767-300F, Boeing was able to increase deliveries of the 777F from 21 to 26 aircraft.

The 747-8F had only the final aircraft delivered at the beginning of the year, compared to five four-engine aircraft in 2022.
