Airbus Orders and Deliveries – March 2019

Issue: 02-2019

The leading European aircraft manufacturer Airbus has closed out orders for the last month of the quarter with 58 airliners. While the figures are much better than those of the first two months where the company had managed to secure orders only for four of the smallest aircraft in its range of platforms produced. Airbus will still close the quarter with a net order deficit of 58 aircraft. The manufacturer has also not yet accounted for the new orders and large cancellation by Emirates Airlines, following the closure of the Airbus A380 programme. Airbus secured three Airbus A350 orders this month, the first from Lufthansa for 20 aircraft, the second from STARLUX Airlines of Taiwan for 17 Airbus A350 airliners and finally a single Airbus A350 for an undisclosed customer. The lone single-aisle order for the month was for 20 Airbus A320neo airliners from an undisclosed customer. Airbus delivered a total of 74 aircraft in March 2019 to 40 customers, with deliveries from all of its product lines.
