Industry sources revealed on Thursday that Airbus increased their deliveries by 6% in the first half of the year to reach 316 aircraft for the six months. The Netherlands-headquartered plane manufacturer delivered 72 planes in June, up from 63 in May. June’s figure is also 20% higher than the 60 planes delivered in June last year.
Airbus boosted its deliveries from 297 aircraft during the first six months of 2022. This year, the company is aiming to make a total of 720 deliveries
The performance of the aviation company is even more impressive considering that aerospace deliveries at large have been affected by supply chain issues while labor shortages stemming from the Covid pandemic persist.
Chief Commercial Officer Christian Scherer stated in June that while industry-wide issues continue to pose an obstacle, Airbus is beginning to experience a more “predictable” pattern in industrial economic conditions.
Airbus is set to report its first-half financial results on July 26.
