Boeing’s commercial aircraft deliveries plummeted last year amid the ongoing 737 Max crisis.

Numbers fell to an 11-year low in 2019 with a 53% slump to 380 aircraft – the lowest number since 2007.

Net orders after cancellations for 2019 totalled just 54 aircraft compared with 893 the previous year.

The 787 Dreamliner was the most popular type, with 158 deliveries.

The end of year result compares with rival Airbus delivering a record 863 aircraft last year with 768 net orders after cancellations.

Boeing halted production of the 737 Max last month following the type being grounded in March in the wake of two crashes which killed a total of 346 people.

The 2019 results follow new boss David Calhoun voicing his confidence in the future of the company while admitting the manufacturer faced a “crucial time” amid negotiations with regulators to resume 737 Max flights.
