Reuters: Airbus 1H Deliveries Up by 6% Compared to 2022

Airbus deliveries increased by only 6 percent in the first half of the year compared to deliveries in the first half of 2022, according to a Reuters report citing industry sources.  Airbus is expected to report deliveries of 316 aircraft through the first six months of 2023 when it announces midyear results on July 26, up from the 297 aircraft it delivered in the first half of last year.

However, Reuters’ sources also said that Airbus delivered 72 planes in June, a 20 percent increase over the 60 jets it delivered in the same month last year.  Deliveries are likely accelerating at this point as the jet maker attempts to increase output to a total of 720 deliveries for the year.

We’ll be publishing a full report on Airbus’ 1H results later this month.  Our forecasts for Airbus track the manufacturer’s delivery plan for 2023.  The supply chain is in better shape than it was last year, and so far we’re not seeing evidence of serious production hiccups that could derail its ramp-up.
