CHICAGO —

Boeing delivered 65 of its 787s last year, even though deliveries were halted for a four months because of battery problems.

Boeing was able to step up the pace once deliveries resumed in May, and it handed over 25 of the jets during the final quarter of last year.

Boeing said Monday it delivered a total of 648 planes in 2013, a new record. That appears to put the Chicago company ahead of European competitor Airbus, which has said it expected to deliver about 600 jets for the year.

Boeing's other deliveries included 440 of its 737s and 98 of its long-range 777s.

Boeing and Airbus are both in the midst of a boom in aircraft orders, driven by growing affordability of air travel in Asia and Latin America.
