Infographic Airbus Commercial Aircraft Orders And Deliveries 2018

Airbus delivered 800 commercial aircraft to customers in 2018, setting a new record for the company.

Airbus entered 2019 with new company records, building on the success of the previous several years. In 2018, Airbus delivered a total of 800 commercial aircraft to 93 customers worldwide – meeting its full year delivery guidance and setting a new company record. The number of deliveries has continued to increase annually for 16 years in a row. 

In terms of sales, Airbus achieved 747 net orders during 2018 compared with 1,109 net orders in 2017. 

Airbus began 2019 with a commercial aircraft backlog of 7,577 jetliners, setting a new record for the industry. This includes 480 A220s – the result of a European-Canadian partnership with Bombardier that saw two of the Canadian manufacturer’s jetliners brought into the Airbus commercial aircraft product line. Designated A220-100 and A220-300, these aircraft have been designed and purpose-built for the 100-150 seat market.

Delta Air Lines became the first U.S. operator to receive an A220 jetliner – and expanded its order to 90 aircraft of this single-aisle family.

As of early 2019, more than 530 orders were placed for A220 aircraft, including 90 booked by Delta Air Lines. Expanding an earlier order, this U.S.-based carrier increased its number of the larger A220-300 version booked to 50 jetliners. Other U.S. customers – JetBlue, Moxy and Republic Airways Holdings – also have placed orders for the A220.

With the A220’s sales success, Airbus is to open a new assembly line for the aircraft at its U.S. manufacturing facility in Mobile, Alabama, which will build jetliners for U.S. customers. Construction of the new facility – located at the Brookley Aeroplex in Mobile, adjacent to Airbus’ existing A320 Family production line – began in January 2019. Assembly of the first A220 aircraft at the Brookley Aeroplex is planned to begin later in 2019.

The Airbus A320neo Family achieved a new milestone in January – Airbus Corporate Jets’ first ACJ320neo was delivered to Acropolis Aviation of the UK. Deliveries of the ACJ320neo’s shorter-fuselage sibling, the ACJ319neo, are set to begin later in 2019.

Both the ACJ320neo and ACJ319neo are members of the A320neo Family – the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft that incorporate latest technologies, such as new generation engines and Sharklet wing tip devices, delivering more than 15% in fuel savings. The ACJ320neo Family aircraft have the widest and tallest cabins of any business jet, without costing more to operate or taking up additional ramp space.
