Boeing announced that it had set a record last year for the number of commercial airplanes delivered.

The Chicago-based airplane manufacturer said it had delivered 762 commercial planes, 39 more than the previous year, and the most ever for the company in a single year. The 762 aircraft are valued at $112.4 billion at current list prices.

Boeing also said it received 768 net commercial orders and had unfulfilled commercial orders of 5,795 by the year’s end.

Five customers received their first 787 Dreamliners in 2015, among them American Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Royal Air Maroc, Scoot, and Vietnam Airlines. Additionally, Boeing’s 747 program delivered its 100th 747-8.

2015 also saw the airplane manufacturer roll out its first 737 Max, and expand its Seattle Delivery Center.
