Boeing has published its May 2023 orders and deliveries report, providing insight into the company’s performance.
Boeing reported 69 gross orders for the month, with two coming from Air Niugini for the 787-8 Dreamliner. This is a crucial fleet renewal moment for the company as it looks to become more efficient and transition older aircraft.
Additionally, 59 commitments were placed from unidentified customers for the 737 MAX. This was also met with eight commitments from unidentified customers for the 787-9 Dreamliner.
For Boeing, their 737 MAX and 787 series lead the line for orders. As their 777X is yet to enter service and for other reasons, the series has been going through an order drought. At the same time, any other commercial aircraft is out of production or has been transitioned to a freighter.
Boeing also delivered 50 aircraft to customers for the month in a month, primarily labelled as a rebound following issues identified in the 737 MAX.
35 737 MAX jets were delivered to customers in May, a substantial increase from Apri’s figures as the company managed to rectify issues in its supply chain that sparked the concerns.
8 Boeing 787s were delivered; meanwhile, 3 767 freighters and 777 freighters equally for the industry’s passenger and freighter side.
