Boeing (BA) and its jet engine supplier General Electric (GE) heads to the Paris Air Show next week, fueled by an increase in orders and deliveries. BA stock rose close to a buy point on Friday. GE stock and Boeing’s European rival Airbus (EADSY) reached highs in 52 weeks.


Boeing’s new commercial jets

The Dow Jones giant confirmed on Monday that it will showcase the Boeing 737 Max 10 and Boeing 777-9, its new commercial jets, at the week-long air show. The event runs from June 18-25.

General Electric (GE) supplies engines for the 777-9 jet. It also manufactures engines for the 737-10 through a joint venture. GE also supplies Airbus with jet engines.

Airbus and GE will also showcase their latest products at the 2023 Paris Air Show. GE CEO Larry Culp will lead an investor event on June 20, the company announced Friday.

On Tuesday, Boeing reported 50 deliveries last month, nearly double April’s 26. It reported 69 orders, more than double April’s 34.

However, its 206 deliveries so far this year lag behind Airbus’ 244, amid production problems.

Boeing’s bestseller

The 737 Max, a narrow-body aircraft, is Boeing’s best-selling aircraft. The 777-9, a wide-body aircraft, borrows advanced technologies from the 787 Dreamliner, according to Boeing.

Recently, Boeing suspended or slowed deliveries of the 737 and 787 due to manufacturing issues.

On June 18, the company will also release its commercial market outlook for 2023.
