(New York) Boeing announced on Tuesday that it delivered 26 aircraft to its customers in January, mainly 737 MAXs, and continues to record more cancellations than orders during this period.
Flight rental company Atlas Air Worldwide last month promised to buy four 747-8F cargo aircraft. The manufacturer also received six order cancellations as the epidemic continued to weigh heavily on aviation finance matters.
In 2020, the American aircraft manufacturer registered 184 orders and received 657 cancellations or exchanges of orders, including 641 for 737 MAXs.
The team was recently able to resume deliveries of this star plane, with 346 people killed last November by American authorities, then other regulators, after twenty months of stabilization on Earth.
Boeing had about 450 737 MAX aircraft at the time. It delivered 27 in December and 21 in January.
The Seattle giant did not deliver the 787 “Dreamliner” in January, as it did in November and December. Deliveries of this aircraft have been damaged since manufacturing defects were discovered last summer.
