Boeing To Raise Monthly Production Of 737 Planes To 52 In 2018

(Reuters) – Boeing Co (BA.N) on Thursday announced plans to raise output of 737 jetliners beyond its already blistering production pace, saying global demand for new aircraft justifies it.

The move to build a record 52 737s a month in 2018, from 42 currently, while widely expected, shows Boeing’s confidence that its factory and its network of suppliers can step up to the fastest-ever rate for Boeing’s single-aisle jet.

The increase will push production of 737 aircraft to 624 a year in 2018, almost matching the 648 jetliners the company delivered last year across all four of its main models.
