Per Reuters, Boeing is eyeing a substantial increase in production for its 737 MAX series.

Boeing Targets 57 Units Per Month

By July 2025, Boeing wants to increase production of its MAX towards 57 units per month.

Such an increase would set a record for the plane maker and highlight the strong resurgence seen with the series since its reintroduction from the pandemic and the crisis it experienced following two significant incidents.

Questions Around The 737 MAX Recovery

Many questions arose during the late 2010s and early 2020s about the recovery the 737 MAX would experience.

The pandemic and the long-standing crisis involving the type presented a discussion over the appetite for the plane.

However, since its widespread re-approval to regions globally, airlines have flocked back, committing to the type for their long-term flying.

Repositioning To Be A Global Leader In Aircraft Manufacturing

With the strong backlog and continued interest and commitment, Boeing wants to reposition itself to meet this demand by increasing production.

Following the pandemic’s emergence, increasing production has been more challenging than ever. This comes directly from strains on supply chains, labour shortages and more.

Two sources close to the plane maker and Reuters reported the increase would reflect the company’s ambition for the type.
