Boeing Co. said it delivered 97 commercial airplanes in the second quarter, bringing its total for the year so far to 195.
Boeing said deliveries of 70 of its next-generation 737s made up the bulk of the total. It also delivered 17 of its longer-range 777 jets.
Boeing delivered 28 aircraft for defense operations, including 11 F/A-18 ''Super Hornet'' fighters. Year to date, the company said it has delivered a total of 55.
Airlines have recently been ordering more planes, hoping to replace the older, gas-guzzling portions of their fleets with lighter, more fuel-efficient aircraft. Boeing has been battling with European rival Airbus to meet the demand.
