Airbus delivered 30 aircraft in January; orders totaled 31 A350 wide-bodies

European planemaker has a better start to the year than in 2023 but at the same level as 2022

Airbus released its January 2024 orders and deliveries report with better numbers than in 2023.

According to the company, 30 commercial jets were delivered, 28 of them single-aisle and only the wide-bodies of the A330 family.

The volume is 10 aircraft higher than in January 2023, thanks to the greater number of A320neo family jets delivered – 26 compared to 16 in January last year.

By 2022, the aircraft manufacturer had already delivered the same number of commercial jets, however.

Airbus also delivered two A220-300s (Qantas and JetBlue) and two A330-900s (ITA Airways and Condor). The A320neo and A321neo had 13 deliveries each.

Its largest aircraft, the A350, did not record any deliveries, however, it was responsible for the only two acquisition contracts signed last month.

Agreements were reached with Ethiopian (11 A350-900) and Delta Airlines (20 A350-1000). The African carrier had already announced its plan to order more wide-bodies during the Dubai Airshow.

There were no cancellations in January, which made Airbus’ backlog reach 8,599 aircraft.

The European company has scheduled the Annual Press Conference for February 15th to comment on the 2023 results and possibly reveal the guidance for 2024.

Last year, the planemaker delivered 735 commercial aircraft, 15 above target.
