Boeing’s deliveries rose to 35 planes last month, helped partly by a resumption in handovers of latest 787 Dreamliners to airlines.

Manufacturing flaws had paused deliveries of the wide-body Dreamliners for much of the past two years.

Germany’s Lufthansa and Dutch airline KLM were amongst the shoppers that received latest Dreamliners in August after the planes were cleared by the Federal Aviation Administration, Boeing said. Each carrier received one plane apiece.

The 2 Dreamliners American Airlines received last month weren’t included within the tally. Those jets were flown to Victorville, California, for Boeing to put in Wi-Fi equipment and other items within the planes’ interiors.

Boeing also logged 26 net orders for brand new planes last month, half of them for 737 Max aircraft. Its net orders for the yr stand at 388 and deliveries at 277 planes. That trails the 637 net orders and 380 deliveries rival Airbus has reported.

Each manufacturers have said supply chain constraints are limiting their abilities to ramp up production despite the surge in air travel.
