In 2022, Boeing delivered 480 aircraft, Airbus - 661 aircraft. At the same time, Boeing significantly improved results compared to the previous two years, when both deliveries and financial results of the company were poor due to the suspension of operations of the 737 MAX and 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
