Boeing set a company record in 2013 for the most commercial aircraft delivered in a single year with 648. The company's unfilled commercial order book also hit a new peak, totalling 5,080 at the end of the year.

Boeing booked a record 1,531 gross commercial orders in 2013, 1,355 after taking into account cancellations. In 2013, three programs set records for deliveries in a single year:

  • The 737 program delivered 440 Next-Generation 737s;
  • The 777 program delivered 98 aircraft; and,
  • The 787 program delivered 65 Dreamliners.

"With solid execution on our numerous production rate increases, the Boeing team performed extremely well in 2013," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "We delivered more advanced, fuel-efficient airplanes to our customers than ever before, and it's a great example of what our team can accomplish."

During 2013, Boeing launched the 787-10 Dreamliner at the Paris Air Show in June and the 777X at the Dubai Air Show in November.

"The year ahead will be exciting as we prepare to deliver the first 787-9, continue the design work on our newest programs – the 737 MAX, 787-10 and 777X – while increasing our production rates on the 737," continued Conner. "We'll remain focused on meeting our customer commitments by delivering the best products and services."
