Highlights from the Boeing 2017 Delivery Figures
Boeing released its 2017 order and delivery figures today, managing a record 763 aircraft deliveries, the most ever delivered in a single year. 69 percent of those deliveries were for variants of the venerable 737, including the first deliveries of the new 737 MAX.
Boeing delivered 763 total aircraft in 2017, including 529 737s, 14 747s, 10 767s, 74 777s, and 136 787s.
737s—The first MAX goes home
Out of 529 737s delivered, 74 were new 737 MAX 8s, delivered to 17 different airlines. You can track all of the 737 MAX delivered so far with aircraft code ‘B38M’.
747s—The last passenger
In 2017, Boeing delivered 14 747s, including the what is very likely the last passenger 747 ever delivered to a commercial airline. On 31 July, Korean Air took delivery of HL7644 from Paine Field in Everett, Washington, marking the probable end of passenger 747 deliveries. During 2017, Boeing also delivered two not-taken-up 747-8I airframes to the United States Air Force for use as the next presidential aircraft.
On the cargo side, UPS Airlines and Qatar Airways Cargo joined the 747-8F operator list, taking 3 and 2 new aircraft respectively.
