The Boeing Co. said Thursday it delivered 181 commercial planes during the second quarter, a 7.1 percent increase from the same period a year ago.

The deliveries included 124 next generation 737s, 30 787s, 24 777s, two 747s and one 767. It said it has delivered a total of 342 commercial planes so far this year.

The Chicago company said its defense, space and security unit also saw gains. It delivered 45 planes or helicopters and two satellites. That’s up from the 31 planes and helicopters it delivered in the second quarter last year.

Looking ahead, Norwegian Air wants to buy more 787-9 Dreamliners to expand its international service. On Thursday, CEO Bjorn Kjos told the Wall Street Journal his low-fare airline wants 20 more of the Boeing jets.
