Boeing Reports Third Quarter Deliveries

The Boeing Company today announced third quarter deliveries across its major commercial, military and space operations.

The company delivered 120 commercial jet transports in the third quarter of 2001, 19 less than anticipated before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Twenty-nine jet transport deliveries were made after Sept. 11 through the end of the quarter to domestic and international customers. Year-to-date deliveries now total 383 commercial jet aircraft. The company currently expects to deliver approximately 500 commercial airplanes in 2001 depending upon customer ability to take delivery in the near term.

Deliveries for military and space operations were not affected by the Sept. 11 events.
