In August, Airbus delivered 52 commercial aircraft And recorded 117 aircraft orderedthe European aircraft manufacturer announced yesterday.
Airbus, which has planned 720 aircraft delivered in 2023, is still impacted by the difficulties of some of its suppliers to keep up with its ramp-up. It has delivered 433 planes since the start of the year. It therefore has 287 left to submit by December, a theoretical monthly rate of 72 which it has so far only reached in June this year. In July, this total was 60. In 2022, Airbus, which was already counting on 720 aircraft delivered, had to abandon its objectives by delivering only 661 units.
On the orders side, Airbus recorded in August 75 A321neo single-aisle aircraft acquired by the low-cost Hungarian company Wizz Air, as well as 12 identical aircraft ordered by a customer whose identity has not been communicated. The European aircraft manufacturer has signed for 28 long-haul A330s, including 20 with the lessor Avolon and five with Air Algérie, the latter having also ordered two A350s. Airbus’ order book ensures at the current rate more than ten years of production since as of August 31, it had 8,024 aircraft on order.
