Boeing delivered its 2,000th aircraft to a Chinese operator, a 737 MAX for Xiamen Airlines, on 30th November.

The growth of the Chinese market is accelerating. Boeing delivered its first 1,000 airplanes to Chinese airlines over four decades. The next 1,000 Boeing jets have been delivered over the past five years.

The new Boeing 737 MAX, sporting a special logo commemorating the milestone, is the eighth MAX airplane to join fast-growing Xiamen Airlines, which operates the largest all-Boeing fleet in China with more than 200 jets.

Boeing forecasts that China will need 7,690 new airplanes, valued at $1.2 trillion, by 2038. Boeing also forecasts China will experience strong growth in the commercial services market with demand growing $1.5 trillion over the next 20 years, accounting for 17% of world demand.
