Aircraft manufacturer Boeing Co. delivered 28 airplanes in July as easing travel restrictions buoyed demand, Reuters reported.
- The deliveries for the month include 22 of the 737 MAX single-aisle jets; five widebodies including a KC-46 tanker to the US Air Force and four freighters; and one P-8 maritime patrol aircraft for the US Navy.
- The order tally for July stood at 14 to mark the sixth straight month of positive net orders. The company initially received 31 aircraft orders, but 17 were canceled — 15 MAXs and two 787s.
- Year-to-data deliveries hit 184 jetliners. Boeing’s total backlog hit 4,141 in July versus 4,155 at the end of June. The company has delivered 154 of the 737 MAX jets since November 2020.
The Federal Aviation Administration in July said some undelivered 787s will need fixes before they are delivered. Deliveries of the said planes have been halted twice since 2020 due to structural defects. BA is up 1.04%.
