Boeing Co delivered 51 airplanes in June to bring its first-half tally to 216 jets, up 38% from the same period last year, company data showed on Tuesday, APA reports citing Reuters.
June’s deliveries exceeded the 50 threshold for the first time since March 2019 and included 43 Boeing 737 MAX, which is recovering from a nearly two-year safety crisis.
Industry sources said monthly MAX production touched a target of 31 airplanes but had yet to be “stabilised” at that level as aerospace faces worldwide snags in the supply chain.
June deliveries included six wide-body commercial freighters but, for the 12th consecutive month, no 787 Dreamliners.
Deliveries of the long-haul jet have been halted for a year as Boeing and regulators address production problems.
