A220 starts contributing to Airbus delivery figures

Airbus has included the A220 in its monthly order backlog and delivery figures for the first time since acquiring the former Bombardier CSeries programme at the beginning of July.

The airframer puts total orders for the A220 at 402 aircraft, comprising 279 A220-300s and 123 of the smaller -100. All were logged before the acquisition.

Thirty-nine aircraft, including 31 A220-300s and eight -100s, have been delivered – among them two -300s since Airbus took over.

These two aircraft were transferred respectively to Korean Air on 9 July and Air Baltic on 19 July.

They helped to take Airbus single-aisle deliveries to 304 aircraft since the beginning of the year, and total aircraft deliveries to 380.

Its 76 long-haul deliveries comprised 46 A350s, 23 A330s and seven A380s.

Airbus managed to hand over 77 aircraft during the single month of July, including the two A220s.
