Boeing expands deliveries in November and could reach target for 2023

The aircraft manufacturer sent 56 aircraft to its customers, 45 of which were the 737 MAX. Total for the year reached 461 planes, just 19 less than in 2022

Boeing managed to recover from two slow months in deliveries by sending its customers 56 aircraft in November. The total includes two jets for military use.

After having to interrupt deliveries of the 737 MAX due to problems encountered in the assembly carried out by its supplier Spirit Aerosystems, Boeing managed to deliver 45 jets of the model last month. Between September and October there were only 33 planes.

Between January and November, Boeing delivered 343 737 MAX in addition to eight P-8A Poseidon, a maritime patrol version of the 737NG.

There are, therefore, 24 narrow-aisle jets left to reach the revised target of 375 aircraft. The US planemaker had targeted delivering 400 single-aisle jets by 2023, the total still within its reach.

Boeing also showed momentum in delivering the widebodies of the 787 Dreamliner family. After some stoppages on the assembly line, the company has already delivered 62 aircraft, twice as many as in 2022.

The target for 2023 is 70 787 planes, meaning there are only eight aircraft left to reach it.

114 firm orders

In total, Boeing has already delivered 461 commercial aircraft in 2023, compared to 480 in the 12 months of 2022. It is therefore expected that the company will surpass the level of 500 aircraft this year.
