Before the huge Air India jetliner sale, Boeing states and deliveries dropped in January

February 16, 2023: -Boeing’s aircraft announced and deliveries dropped in January from a month earlier.

Boeing delivered 38 jetliners last month, 35 of them its bestselling 737 Max planes, down from a total of 69 jets in December. The delivery count was still higher than the 32 planes Boeing handed to the customers in January 2022.

The figures don’t include a massive order from Air India for almost 500 new planes from the manufacturer and its chief rival, Airbus, which was formalized on Tuesday.

Air India ordered nearly 220 Boeing and 250 Airbus planes, which makes the combined sale the most significant aircraft order ever as airlines prepare for more healing in air travel as Covid pandemic travel concerns wane.

In the previous month, Boeing said it planned to ramp up the output of its 737 Max to 50 planes a month by the year 2026, though it’s been cautious regarding growths beyond the current pace of 31 per month because of fluctuation in the supply chain.

The firm logged 55 awful orders in January, which nets orders for 16 new planes after 39 cancellations.

On Wednesday, Boeing’s CFO, Brian West, will brief analysts and investors at a Cowen industry conference.
