The month in review: September 2018

Airbus increased the order book for its best-selling A320 Family with orders in September for 37 of the single-aisle aircraft, while delivering 69 jetliners during the month from across its A220, A320, A330, A350 XWB and A380 product lines.

September’s new business was led by 25 A321neo (New Engine Option) aircraft for Viva Aerobus – the ultra-low-cost carrier based in Mexico, along with seven A320neo and three A321neo jetliners for Swiss International Air Lines. Completing the month’s bookings were one A320neo for Oman’s budget airline, SalamAir; and an ACJ320ceo (Current Engine Option) aircraft in the Airbus Corporate Jet configuration for an unidentified customer.

These transactions brought Airbus’ net orders for the January-September 2018 timeframe to 256 aircraft, composed of 198 single-aisle jetliners (183 A319/A320/A321neo and 15 A319/A320/A321ceo versions); along with four A330ceo, four A330neo, 36 A350 XWB, and 14 A380 aircraft from the widebody product lines.

The Airbus deliveries during September were paced by single-aisle aircraft, with 51 from the A320 Family provided to customers and operators (including 37 A320neo/A321neo jetliners) as well as three A220s; and 15 widebodies (four A330-200/A330-300s, 10 A350-900/A350-1000s, and one A380).

Taking the month’s order and delivery activity into account, Airbus’ overall backlog of jetliners remaining to be delivered stood at 7,383 aircraft as of September 30, representing approximately nine years of production at current rates.
