Airbus’s activity for the first month of 2021 centred on deliveries, with 21 aircraft handed over during January.

The airframer did not record any orders – or cancellations – over the course of the month.

Its two long-haul aircraft deliveries comprised an A350-900 for Turkish Airlines and an A330-800 for Uganda Airlines.

Among the 19 single-aisle deliveries were 10 A320neos, one A321neo, one A319neo and four A321s, plus three A220s for Delta Air Lines and Air Canada.

Airbus deliveries for January were about one-third down from those in the same month last year, when it handed over 31 aircraft.

Its backlog at the end of January 2021 stood at 7,163 aircraft including 508 A350s and 297 A330s.
