Summary

Incremental innovation rewarded by A320neo & A330neo market success

Highest number of Airbus Widebody airliners delivered

Industry record backlog of 6,386 aircraft secures Airbus’ long term outlook.

Highlights: Airbus’ 2015 year-opening press conference
 

A highly-successful 2014 – during which Airbus achieved a new company record of 629 deliveries, while also receiving 1,456 net orders from 67 customers – is outlined by management during the year-opening press conference held 13 January 2015 in Toulouse, France. Providing comments in this video clip are President and CEO Fabrice Brégier and John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer – Customers.

Airbus’ 2014 highlights
 

The company’s successful 2014 – during which it booked more than 1,456;_LINE_TERMINATEDnet orders and delivered 629 aircraft – is recapped in this “best of”;_LINE_TERMINATEDvideo. Highlights from the 12-month period include: completing the A350;_LINE_TERMINATEDXWB’s successful flight test campaign and Airbus’ first A350-900;_LINE_TERMINATEDdelivery to global launch customer Qatar Airways; July’s A330neo (new;_LINE_TERMINATEDengine option) launch; the maiden flight of the A320neo during;_LINE_TERMINATEDSeptember; three new customers receiving their first A380 jetliners in;_LINE_TERMINATED2014; and more.

Airbus has exceeded its targets for 2014, achieving a new record of 629 aircraft deliveries for 89 customers of which eight are new, comprising 490 A320 Family aircraft, 108 A330s, 30 A380s and also our first A350 XWB. This production achievement means that Airbus’ aircraft deliveries in 2014 were up for the 13th year in a row, surpassing the previous record set in 2013.
Airbus also achieved 1,456 net orders from 67 customers (of which 14 are new) – our second best year ever, comprising 1,321 single aisle aircraft and 135 widebodies. As a result, by year end, the backlog had climbed to a new industry record of 6,386 aircraft valued at US$ 919.3 billion at list prices.
At 2014 year end, Airbus commanded more than 50% market share for aircraft above 100 seats. Among the numerous sales achievements was the A330neo’s success in attracting 120 firm endorsements within just six months of its launch. Another commercial highlight was Delta’s decision to select the A330neo for its transatlantic services and the A350 for its transpacific routes. A third highlight of 2014 was the enduring popularity of our A320neo and ceo aircraft which together attracted numerous orders especially from the leasing companies.
Industrially, the clear milestone of the year was the completion of A350 XWB testing and certification culminating in the on-time delivery of the first aircraft for Qatar Airways. We also reached our target of delivering 30 A380s while welcoming Asiana, Qatar Airways and Etihad as new operators of this flagship aircraft. And as the A330neo development programme gains momentum, the highly popular A330ceo continues to benefit from our commitment to incremental innovation. Meanwhile, the A320neo programme is proceeding on track following its first flight September 2014, paving the way for certification in Q3 and first deliveries in Q4.
“2014 has been an excellent year and the teams in Airbus not only delivered on, but exceeded their targets and commitments,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO. “Airbus also made strong progress towards a faster, simpler and more agile company, while our strategy of incremental innovation is helping to consolidate our market-leading position in all categories.”
Airbus is the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer of passenger airliners, ranging in capacity from 100 to more than 500 seats. Airbus has design and manufacturing facilities in France, Germany, the UK, and Spain, and subsidiaries in the US, China, India, Japan and in the Middle East. In addition, it provides the highest standard of customer support and training through an expanding international network.
