Airbus recorded a single order during August, for one corporate A320neo which was received from a private customer.

It took the airframer’s overall net order total this year to 303 aircraft.

Total deliveries over the first eight months of the year reached 284, the manufacturer’s latest backlog figures show.

This means it handed over 39 aircraft during August – comprising two A350s, two A330s and 35 single-aisle models.

The deliveries included an A330-900 to Portugal’s Orbest while Gulf Air took its first A321neo.

Airbus did not register any cancellations for the month.
