Airbus delivered nearly 100 fewer aircraft over first four months

Airbus delivered just 14 aircraft during April as the full effects of the coronavirus crisis on its production operation became evident, a total down by 80% on the 70 deliveries achieved in the same month last year.

The airframer registered only a single order – for nine A320neo-family jets from lessor Avolon – bringing overall net orders for the first four months of 2020 to 299.

No cancellations were recorded for April.

Just two long-haul aircraft were delivered in April, comprising an A350-900 for Japan Airlines and an A330-200 for conversion into a tanker by Airbus’s military division.

These were complemented by the handover of six A321neos and six A320neos. Chinese-affiliated deliveries featured, with Loong Air receiving an A320neo, while CMB Financial Leasing and CDB Leasing took aircraft respectively for Flynas and Azul.

Airbus also delivered five single-aisle aircraft to Turkish Airlines and fellow Turkish operator Pegasus Airlines, another three to IndiGo, and one to Spirit Airlines.

The airframer has not indicated how many aircraft have been manufactured but currently remain undelivered.

But Airbus had delivered 136 aircraft by the end of April, nearly 100 fewer than the 232 deliveries it had achieved by the same point last year. Compared with 2019 single-aisle deliveries are down 40% while long-haul deliveries have nearly halved.
