The Boeing Company announced on Tuesday major program deliveries across its commercial and defense operations for the fourth quarter of 2020.

In commercial airplane programs, Boeing has delivered a total of 59 aircraft in the fourth quarter of 2020. The year-to-date delivery through Dec. 31, 2020 reached 157, including two 777Fs respectively to China Southern Airlines and China Cargo, and two 737-800 planes to China Eastern Airlines.

In its defense, space and security programs, a total of 34 aircraft were delivered in the fourth quarter.

"Through the global pandemic, we took meaningful steps to adapt to our new market, transform our business and deliver for our commercial, defense, space and services customers in 2020," said Greg Smith, Boeing executive vice president of Enterprise Operations and chief financial officer.

"The resumption of 737 MAX deliveries in December was a key milestone as we strengthen safety and quality across our enterprise. We also continued comprehensive inspections of our 787 airplanes ... while limiting our 787 deliveries for the quarter," he added.

According to Smith, the company has continued working closely with global customers and monitoring the slow international traffic recovery to align supply with market demand across its widebody programs.

"In 2021, we'll continue taking the right actions to enhance our safety culture, preserve liquidity and transform our business for the future," he noted.
