Airbus facts and figures

Airbus offers a modern and comprehensive family of civil airliners with capacities ranging from 100 to more than 500 seats. 

The company regularly captures approximately half of all commercial airliner orders in the 100-seat and above categories. Airbus has sold over 15,200 aircraft and delivered 8,800-plus jetliners since its creation in 1970. Through 2014, more than 8,100 Airbus aircraft are in service, with some 500 customers and operators located worldwide.

Airbus’ philosophy is to avoid cyclic changes in its production/delivery rates, thereby preventing peaks and dips in the response to market situation.  As a result the company has implemented a smooth increase in output every year since the mid-2000s.  

The company’s backlog of commercial jetliners through 2014 stood at an industry-wide record of 6,386 aircraft, valued at US$919.3 billion at list prices.
