Boeing also is resuming its stock repurchase program, which is expected to total between $1.5 billion and $2 billion in 2013.
"Strong cash generation, consistently solid core operating performance and a positive growth outlook enable us to take these steps to deliver value for our shareholders," Jim McNerney, Boeing's chief executive, said in a statement.
The repurchase program is expected to use the remaining $3.6 billion previously authorized by the Boeing board of directors in 2007. Boeing plans to begin repurchasing shares following its fourth-quarter earnings announcement in late January 2013.
The dividend is payable March 8, 2013, to shareholders of record as of Feb. 15, 2013.
