Boeing

Boeing Co. said Monday it delivered 13 more jets in the third quarter of 2015 and 52 more jets for the first nine months of the year.

Boeing delivered a total of 199 airliners for the third quarter and 580 through the three quarters of 2015. That compares with 186 in the third quarter of 2014 and 528 in the first nine months of 2014.

Deliveries in the quarter and the year were highest for its smallest jet, the 737 — the fuselage of which is manufactured by Wichita’s Spirit AeroSystems. Boeing delivered 126 of the models in the third quarter and 375 year-to-date. That compares with 120 in the third quarter of 2014 and 359 for the year.

Deliveries also were up for its newest jet, the 787. Boeing delivered 37 787s in the third quarter of 2015 and 101 for the first nine months of the year. That’s up from 31 and 79 deliveries for the same periods last year, respectively.

Boeing delivered more 767s in both periods, as well: five in the third quarter and 14 for the year. That compares with two in the third quarter and three in the first nine months of 2014.

Boeing saw flat deliveries of the 777 between the third quarters of 2015 and 2014: 27. But it delivered two more 777s year-to-date in 2015 than in 2014, for a total of 77 of the twin-aisle, long-range jetliner.

Deliveries of the 747 were lower in the third quarter, four in 2015 compared with six in 2014, but higher in the first nine months: 13 in 2015 compared with 12 in 2014.
