Boeing delivers 22 jets in February
Boeing Co. said, on Tuesday, it delivered 22 aircraft in February, up from 17 a year earlier. Its net orders had also turned positive for the first time in 14 months. With COVID-19 vaccine rollouts, the confidence of its airline customers boosted.
Access to vaccines is expected to help recovery in air travel, benefiting plane-makers especially, Boeing. It is relying on deliveries of the 737-MAX for financial-turnaround after the jet’s grounding due to two fatal crashes.
Boeing said it booked 82 new orders in February, taking its gross-total for the year so-far to 86 planes.
