Aircraft maker The Boeing Company ( BA ) on Wednesday posted better-than-expected third quarter earnings and lifted its full-year outlook, sending its shares higher in premarket trading.

The Chicago-based company reported third quarter earnings of $1.03 billion, or $1.35 per share, compared with $1.10 billion, or $1.46 per share, in the year-ago period.

Revenue surged 13% from last year to $20.01 billion.


On average, Wall Street analysts expected a much smaller profit of $1.12 per share, albeit on slightly higher revenue of $20.03 billion.

Looking ahead, BA said it now expects full-year earnings to range from $4.80 to $4.85 per share, which would easily beat analysts' view of $4.73 per share for the year.

Boeing shares rose $1.88, or +2.6%, in premarket trading Wednesday.
