SEATTLE, Washington: Amidst supply chain issues and regulatory hurdles, U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing announced it had delivered 29 of its 737 MAX single-aisle jets to customers in May.

Boeing said it also delivered to customers the fourth-to-last of its hump-backed 747s, built as a freighter for Atlas Air, and three 777 freighters, highlighting strong demand for cargo aircraft.

Boeing announced its closely-monitored monthly orders and deliveries summary during media briefings at its Seattle-area facilities this week, in preparation for the Farnborough Airshow in the UK next month.

Among various challenges affecting its business, the company is struggling to resolve supply chain issues that have slowed its production of 737 aircraft, as well as to attain approval to deliver more 787 Dreamliners.

According to the data released this week, in May Boeing delivered 35 planes, more than double the 17 in the same month one year ago, bringing the delivery total for the first five months of 2022 to 165 aircraft.

Boeing booked 23 orders, 17 of which were for wide body aircraft, including seven 787 Dreamliners ordered by German carrier Lufthansa, and another 737 MAX for American Airlines.

The company said it has booked 236 orders, or 171 after cancellations and conversions, recording 107 net orders so far this year.

Overall, its order backlog rose to 4,192, it added.
