While announcing its November Orders and Deliveries results, Airbus also warned that it would miss the 700 delivery mark.
Citing the 68 aircraft delivery number in November 2022 and a “complex operating environment”, Airbus indicated that the goal is out of reach. However, “the final figure is not expected to fall materially short of the ‘around 700’ delivery target”.
As a result, its financial guidance, announced with nine-month financial results in October 2022, remains the same. The Toulouse, France-based manufacturer expects to achieve Earnings Before Income and Taxes (EBIT) adjusted of €5.5 billion ($5.7 billion) and a Free Cash Flow (before Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and Customer Financing) of €4.5 billion ($4.7 billion) in 2022.
In November 2022, Airbus delivered 68 aircraft and won 29 orders. Year-to-Date (YTD) the manufacturer delivered 565 jets to customers globally. A month prior, Airbus delivered 60 aircraft, while in September 2022, the number stood at 55.
Airbus’ main competitor, Boeing, is yet to update its Orders and Deliveries data for November 2022.
