List prices for Boeing airliners have jumped from 4% to 6% this year reflecting inflation rate increases in the cost of general manufactured goods in the USA, the company says.
This year’s price update also shows that list prices have jumped from 8% to 13.4% over a three-year period, according to Boeing documents.
Compared with last year, the largest price increase belonged to the 737-800 narrowbody, which recorded a 6.4% jump at the low-end of its listed price range. The base price for a 737-600 also grew by 6%, although the top end of its listed price range rose by only 3.6%.
Price ranges for the 787 family, which includes the -3, -8 and -9 models, rose from 5% to 6%, with the top price for a 787-9 growing from $188 million to $200 million.
Meanwhile, prices for 767 aircraft family, which the 787 will eventually replace, jumped from 4.4% to 5.9%. The top price listed for a 767-400ER is now $169 million.
Boeing’s line-up of 777 and 747 widebody airliners have also grown at a consistent rate of between 4.6% and 5.6% since 2006, according to Boeing’s statistics.
The 747-8 passenger aircraft topped the $300 million price barrier for the first time, rising nearly 6% compared with 2006 prices. The lowest price for a member of the 777 family – the 777-200ER – is now $200 million after rising 5% since last year.
Over the three-year period, the largest increase belongs to the maximum price for the 767-300ER, which has increased 13.4% since 2004 to $157.5 million. By contrast, the maximum listed price for the 737-600 has jumped only 8% since 2004, to $57 million in 2007.
