Airbus is continuing its strong momentum from a record-breaking 2013, which confirmed the company’s position as a global aviation leader and its capability to meet customer expectations across its complete product line of single-aisle and widebody jetliners.
The company built upon a successful 2013 with several important programme milestones achieved in 2014.
Among the highlights were the delivery of the world’s first A350 XWB aircraft to Qatar Airways and the maiden flight of Airbus’ A320neo (new engine option) jetliner, as well as the launch of the A330neo (new engine option) version during July’s Farnborough Airshow.
This expands upon Airbus’ strong performance in 2013, during which the company set industry-wide records – both in terms of units and value – with new gross bookings for 1,619 aircraft (1,503 orders net, when cancellations are taken into account). In addition, Airbus’ 626 total jetliners delivered to 93 customers in 2013 marked a highest-ever company output.
