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.

The February orders include 25 737 MAX jets for United Airlines announced earlier in March. It is scheduled to deliver 14 737 MAX aircraft for unidentified customers and 27 KC-46-tankers for the U.S. Air Force.

Singapore Airlines also ordered 11 777X jets as part of a conversion deal announced last month.

February deliveries also include 18 737 MAX jets, three wide-body planes and one P-8 military jet. However, no 787 jet was delivered for the fourth straight month.
