Both of the aircraft manufacturing giants Airbus
reached a historic milestone with a 7000th Airbus
aircraft (an A321) and Boeing
s 7000th 737
coming off the assembly line in the same month and year.
Boeing delivered the 7,000th 737 to come off the production line to Dubai-based flydubai. The airplane is flydubai’s 14th Next-Generation 737-800 with the Boeing Sky Interior and features a logo near the nose of the airplane commemorating the 7,000th 737 milestone.

Airbus delivered its 7,000th aircraft, an A321, to US Airways – the airline that operates the largest fleet of Airbus aircraft in the world – from the Airbus facility in Hamburg, Germany. This milestone comes just two years after the delivery of Airbus’ 6,000th aircraft which underlines the continued vibrancy of the commercial aviation sector and the market’s clear vote for eco-efficient aircraft.
