Boeing Commercial Airplanes, a business unit of The Boeing Company, is committed to being the leader in commercial aviation by offering airplanes and services that deliver superior design, efficiency, and value to customers around the world. There are more than 12,100 Boeing commercial jetliners in service, flying passengers and freight more efficiently than competing models in the market.

Boeing traces its history to aviation pioneer William Boeing, who, in 1916, built the company’s first airplane, a seaplane for two with a range of 320 nautical miles (515 km). Since then, Boeing has defined the modern jetliner and introduced the twin-aisle cabin, the glass cockpit, and countless other innovations.

Today, Boeing Commercial Airplanes offers a family of technologically advanced airplanes, including one that can seat more than 500 and another that boasts the longest range in the world, at more than 9,300 nautical miles (14,966 km).

Meanwhile, Boeing Commercial Airplanes and its global network of suppliers are hard at work building the airplane of tomorrow, a next-generation jet that will set the standard for fuel efficiency and passenger comfort.

With headquarters in Renton, Wash., Boeing Commercial Airplanes has operations in more than a dozen cities and countries. The business unit comprises five airplane programs, VIP-derivative airplanes, extensive fabrication and assembly facilities, and a global customer support organization.
