The month in review: January 2018

Airbus opened its 2018 business activity with orders in January for 20 A320 Family jetliners – taking overall bookings for this best-selling single-aisle product line to 14,135 and delivered 27 single-aisle and widebody aircraft during the month, bringing the company’s total deliveries since its creation to nearly 11,000.

The January transactions involved orders for 15 A320neo jetliners from China Aircraft Leasing Group Holdings Limited (CALC), and five A320ceo versions for U.S.-based low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines.

Taking a booking conversion that occurred in the month into account, Airbus’ net orders for January totalled 15 aircraft.

With its activity through end-January, the tally of orders logged during Airbus’ four decades of existence stood at 18,206 aircraft. This number includes 14,135 A320 Family aircraft bookings – of which 6,005 are for NEO-configured A319s, A320s and A321s.

During January, Airbus provided customers with 21 A320 Family jetliners (taking overall deliveries of the single-aisle Airbus aircraft to 8,000), along with two widebody A330-300s and four A350-900s.

At month’s end, Airbus’ overall backlog of jetliners remaining to be delivered stood at 7,253 – representing approximately nine years of production at current rates.
