In the first half of 2021, Airbus recorded a total of 297 aircraft deliveries to 67 customers, as announced by the manufacturer on July 8, 2021.
The planemaker’s deliveries rose by 52% in comparison to 196 deliveries in the first half of 2020. This followed a strong performance in June 2021 in which the manufacturer delivered 77 aircraft to 44 customers and recorded 73 orders.
Airbus’ first half deliveries in 2021, fall just 92 aircraft short of its aircraft delivery total of 389 aircraft in the first half of 2019. However, momentum from the manufacturer’s June 2021 deliveries places Airbus within reach of surpassing its full year 566 aircraft deliveries score in 2020.
