Airbus marked key milestones in 2016, including service introductions of the A320neo (new engine option) jetliner; first deliveries of the latest A330 Family member tailored for regional routes; expansion of the A350 XWB operator base; start of final assembly for the A330neo; its 10,000th overall delivery and broadening of the company’s customer services offering.
Accompanying these achievements were significant new commercial orders from around the world for Airbus’ product line of single-aisle and widebody aircraft.
This builds on achievements during the previous year – when the company attained a new annual company record of 635 aircraft deliveries. In terms of new business, Airbus received 1,080 net orders placed by 53 customers in 2015. These positive results positioned Airbus at the start of this year with a backlog of 6,831 aircraft, marking a new industry-wide record.
The company’s solid 2015 performance provided a strong platform for its 2016 activities, as Airbus targeted additional improvements in competitiveness – with a particular focus on becoming even more efficient and innovative, while further increasing the diversity of its global operations.
