Boeing delivers 95 jets in first two months of 2019
Boeing Co delivered 95 planes during January and February, two higher than a year earlier, with its best-selling 737 MAX jets accounting for nearly half of the deliveries.
The figures disclosed by the company on Tuesday come as a number of countries ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft following a deadly crash in Ethiopia on Sunday.
Boeing said it delivered 49 aircraft in February, unchanged from a year earlier. That figure reflects 32 deliveries of its bestselling 737 planes, including older versions, down from 35 last year.
Boeing, the world`s biggest planemaker, won 48 net orders during January and February, beating European rival Airbus SE, which did not report any wins and had 99 cancellations dominated by its widebody A350-900 aircraft and the superjumbo A380.
Airbus delivered 88 aircraft in the January-February period, up from 65 a year earlier.
