Boeing On Track For Record Airplane Deliveries In 1999

The Boeing Company delivered 313 commercial jetliners in the first half of 1999, putting the company well on track to deliver a record 620 commercial jetliners this year. The 165 deliveries in the second quarter marked an 11.5 percent increase over the first quarter, and a 20.4 percent increase over the second quarter of 1998.

"This is a marvelous accomplishment," said Alan Mulally, president of Boeing Commercial Airplanes Group. "It clearly signals the return to health of our entire production system including our suppliers and partners. The real significance of this accomplishment goes beyond the delivery totals. We are delivering quality airplanes on schedule. We are so proud of our entire team."
