Where parts play a starring role
The Seattle Distribution Center plays a key role in helping Commercial Aviation Services support its customers. Located near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the SDC is a 700,000-square-foot facility that houses more than 250,000 different parts and handles almost 1 million orders annually. Other Commercial Airplanes spare parts distribution centers are located in Seattle, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Singapore, Beijing and London, as well as Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Their strategic locations minimize shipping costs for customers and reduce the time it takes for customers to receive a Boeing spare part.
A flight through progress

Udvar-Hazy Center, a second facility for the display and preservation of its historic aviation and space artifacts. The center, located near Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., is scheduled to open to the public on Dec. 15.
