Airbus will deliver almost 570 jets in 2020: more orders than cancellations

The aviation group Airbus received more aircraft orders than canceled cancellations in the past year, despite the Corona crisis. The net order book grew by 268 machines over the year, as the European company announced on Friday evening in Toulouse. Thanks to a final spurt, Airbus succeeded in delivering 566 jets for the full year.

However, as expected, Airbus remained far away from the 880 deliveries originally targeted for the full year due to the pandemic and its consequences.

Nevertheless, the group defended its position as the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world. The US rival Boeing had lost the top position to Airbus in 2019 because of the take-off and delivery ban for its most important aircraft type, the 737 Max. The Europeans had delivered 863 airliners that year.
