Boeing Wants to Ramp Up 737 Production

With Growing Order Books and Resurgent Market Demand, Firm Looks to Capitalize on Travel Demand

Industry rumor says Boeing has signaled intent to double its monthly 737 production by the end of 2023, bumping output to around 50 aircraft a month.

The manufacturer has been recovering steadily from its stagnation during the pandemic, bouncing back alongside rival Airbus as each looks to capitalize on resurgent airline passenger traffic. Supposed insiders  privy to plans at the company say that preparations are in the works, with a few caveats that could hamper their efforts amid a spotty economic recovery. Supply chain woes are far from over, difficult for production even at current levels - at double the output, those systems will only be stressed further. Boeing suppliers are grappling with problems of their own, like continuing raw material shortages and hampered workforces, issues remaining from an untimely combination of lockdowns and Boeing's grounded aircraft. 

Earlier this year, CEO Brian West told investors that the company was building 27 737s a month with expectations to increase it to 31 in the coming months. At that level, Boeing would be retreading levels it reached over a decade prior, numbers that once seemed had been left far in the rearview mirror. If it can bring production speed up to its pre-pandemic 2019 peak, the company would be finishing 57 a month, which would still only begin to sate the demand in the market. Boeing's order backlog of 737 Max aircraft remains healthy, with continuous demand around the world.
