Boeing delivers 83 commercial jets in first quarter of 2024


American aerospace giant Boeing delivered a total of 83 commercial airplanes in the first quarter of 2024, according to a company press release issued on April 9. This figure signifies a continued recovery for the manufacturer, with the 737 program leading the way with 67 deliveries.

While the 737 program demonstrates consistent output, Boeing’s widebody programs, including the 767 and 787 Dreamliner, saw more modest delivery numbers. The company delivered 3 and 13 units of the 767 and 787, respectively.

Boeing’s defense and space division also contributed to the first-quarter results with 14 deliveries across various programs, including the AH-64 Apache helicopter, CH-47 Chinook helicopter, F-15 and F/A-18 fighter jets, KC-46 tanker, and P-8 maritime patrol aircraft.

The company is set to release its full first-quarter financial results on April 24, which will provide a more comprehensive picture of its performance and outlook.

These delivery figures come as Boeing continues to navigate its recovery from various challenges in recent years, including the grounding of the 737 MAX and production issues with the 787 Dreamliner.

While the company shows signs of regaining its footing, it faces stiff competition from European rival Airbus, particularly in the narrow-body aircraft market.
