Boeing's 737 deliveries accelerated in September

Boeing has made good on a promise to ramp up 737 deliveries, handing over 61 of the narrowbodies in September as it begins to recover lost ground.

The 61 737 handoffs in the month marks turn around for Boeing, which has struggled lately to get 737s out the door amid supply chain bottlenecks.

Chicago-based Boeing delivered 29 737s in July and 48 in August, figures well below the company's goal of handing over 52 of the aircraft monthly this year.

As 737 deliveries slowed in recent months, executives remained resolute, insisting Boeing had a recovery plan in place and that deliveries would increase in the later part of the year.

Deliveries of 787s also jumped to 18 aircraft in September, more than any in other month in at least the last year, according to Boeing's delivery reports.

Including September, Boeing has delivered a total of 568 commercial aircraft in 2018. The company must handover 242 more airframes by year end to achieve its total 2018 delivery target of 810 to 815 aircraft.
