On Tuesday (January 12, 2021), Boeing announced their fourth quarter deliveries for major commercial and defense programs. During Q4, the company delivered a total of 59 commercial airplanes including 31 737s, three 747s, 10 767s, 11 777s and four 787 Dreamliners. For the full year, Boeing delivered a total of 157 commercial airplanes including 43 737s, five 747s, 30 767s, 26 77s and 53 787s. In Today’s announcement, Boeing’s Executive Vice President of Enterprise Operations and Chief Commercial Officer, Greg Smith, said,
“Through the global pandemic, we took meaningful steps to adapt to our new market, transform our business and deliver for our commercial, defense, space and services customers in 2020. The resumption of 737 MAX deliveries in December was a key milestone as we strengthen safety and quality across our enterprise. We also continued comprehensive inspections of our 787 airplanes to ensure they meet our highest quality standards prior to delivery. While limiting our 787 deliveries for the quarter, these comprehensive inspections represent our focus on safety, quality and transparency, and we're confident that we're taking the right steps for our customers and for the long term health of the 787 program. As we continue navigating through the pandemic, we're working closely with our global customers and monitoring the slow international traffic recovery to align supply with market demand across our widebody programs. In 2021, we'll continue taking the right actions to enhance our safety culture, preserve liquidity and transform our business for the future.”
