Airbus Targets 720 Commercial Deliveries for 2022

LONDON – With Airbus wanting to ramp up production, it is forecasting that 720 aircraft on its commercial wing will be delivered this year.

This represents a 20% increase on the 2021 delivery target for the European planemaker, which was set at around 600.

Such news comes off the back of Airbus aiming to produce an average of 65 aircraft per month by 2023.

Commenting on this news was Airbus chief Guillaume Faury:

“2021 was a year of transition, where our attention shifted from navigating the pandemic towards recovery and growth.”

“Thanks to the resilience and efforts of our teams, customers, and suppliers, we delivered remarkable full-year results”.

“We are doing this in a very complex environment”.

“At Airbus, we do not have too much of this human resources challenge this year but moving forward this will remain a point of attention”.

Post-2023, Faury believes the manufacturer could increase such production numbers to 70 jets a month by the first quarter of 2024 and 75 a month by 2025.

Such ambitious targets definitely come ahead of continued tensions between Ukraine and Russia, with it set to change up the way global aerospace is going to work going forward.
