Airbus’s delivery of 77 aircraft during June marks the second-highest monthly figure since the onset of the air transport crisis.
The level was only exceeded by the 89 achieved by the airframer during its end-of-year wrap-up in December 2020.
Airbus delivered aircraft to 44 customers in June.
These included 11 A350s – to carriers including China Southern Airlines, Air France, SAS and Aeroflot – plus three A330s, among them A330neos to Delta Air Lines and Corsair.
Another A380 was delivered to Emirates and Airbus also handed over 57 A320-family jets and five A220s.
Overall deliveries for the first six months of 2021 reached 297, over 100 more than the 196 recorded at the same point in 2020.
