The total cost of the 39,600 aircraft is estimated at over $5.9 billion.
The company noted the more diverse nature of aviation, with about 38 percent of all new airplanes projected to be delivered to airlines based in Asia. Another 40 percent are expected to be delivered to European and North American airlines. The remaining 22 percent will be delivered to the Middle East, Latin America, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and Africa, according to the Boeing projection.
According to Boeing, last year was a good year for the company and its competitor Airbus, as airlines estimated net profits of over $35 billion in 2015.
Airlines around the world are said to have ordered over 2,400 airplanes in 2015. The trend is expected to continue this year.
