Airbus achieves 800 deliveries for 2018

Airbus managed to deliver 800 commercial aircraft last year, but has yet to confirm the breakdown by type.

The airframer had set a target of 800 deliveries but originally this figure excluded the A220 programme acquired by Airbus in July 2018.

Airbus later revised the outlook, following hold-ups in production, admitting that it would incorporate A220 deliveries in order to maintain the 800-aircraft target.

It had delivered 673 aircraft by the end of November, including 12 A220s.

This indicates that, over the course of December, the airframer managed to hand over at least 127 aircraft.

Airbus is intending to disclose its audited final order and delivery totals for the year on 9 January.
