Airbus maintains A320neo delivery rate in November

Airbus delivered 22 A320neos during November, with engine installations equally shared between the two rival manufacturers.

Eleven of the aircraft were fitted with Pratt & Whitney PW1100G powerplants while the other 11 were equipped with the CFM International Leap-1A, analysis of Airbus delivery data shows.

The number of deliveries matched that in October, when there was a similarly even split between the engine options.

Airbus's output suggests a stabilising of the problematic production of A320neos which has been largely due to technical fixes affecting the PW1100G and the need to prioritise supply of spare engines to operators.

None of the November deliveries featured the A321neo.

Airbus has delivered a total of 134 of the re-engined family this year, including 13 A321neos, but would have to treble the current monthly output during December to meet its target of 200 for the year.
