Airbus Delivered 64 Passenger Aircraft Last Month

Planemaker Airbus said on Monday afternoon it delivered 64 aircraft in November, bringing the total so far this year to 477, down 34 percent from the first 11 months of 2019 as COVID.19 and the lockdown measures to contain its spread curb demand.

Planemaker Airbus said on Monday afternoon it delivered 64 aircraft in November, bringing the total so far this year to 477, down 34 percent from the first 11 months of 2019 as COVID.19 and the lockdown measures to contain its spread curb demand.

In a statement, the company said that Deliveries included seven wide-body A350 jets and 56 single-aisle jets including 54 of the main A320neo narrow-body family. Deliveries are being scrutinized by investors in the United States and all over the world as they generate much-needed cash during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The planemaker also said it sold no aircraft in November, marking the fourth time since European lockdowns began in March that it has gone a month without posting new business as it focuses on getting aircraft delivered. 

Airbus currently has 7,302 orders yet to be fulfilled, equivalent to more than a decade of production at current depressed rates. Between January and November, it posted 381 orders, or a net total of 297 after cancellations, including 11 freshly reported.
