Boeing announced that it’s set a record for the number of 737 deliveries made year-to-date with the delivery of its 377th 737 Next Generation single-aisle aircraft.

The plane was delivered to United Airlines on Monday.

The delivery broke the company’s previous 2010 record of 376 deliveries.

In October, the 737 set a record for the number of net orders in a year with orders of 1,031 737 Next Generation and 737 MAX airplanes.

The number broke Boeing’s record set in 2007 when it recorded 846 net orders.

The 737 is important to Wichita’s Spirit AeroSystems, which builds the 737′s fuselage, nacelles and pylons.
