Airbus sold 222 jets in November, well-poised to win order race

On Thursday, the 5th of December 2019, Airbus SE, the Leiden, Netherlands-based European multinational aerospace corporation, the world’s second-largest aviation industry Goliath behind United States’ Boeing Co., had unveiled its monthly company data for November that showed the Leiden-based European aircraft manufacturer had received orders for 222 aircrafts last month, while its arch-rival United States’ Boeing Co., had still been facing off steep difficulties over deliveries and a slew of order cancellations following a mass grounding of its best-selling Max 737 aircrafts after a March 10th’s fatal air-crash of an Ethiopian airliner that fell from the sky minutes after take-off due to a potential glitch on its autopilot software, killing 149 souls on-board.

In point of fact, Airbus SE’s November’s upbeat order data that released on Thursday (December 5th) was almost entirely catapulted by a sidestepping of US-based Boeing Co. in the latest Dubai Airshow, while a review of a formally recognized order cancellation for the A380 superjumbo by Dubai’s Emirates had buoyed up November orders for Airbus, making it the sole contender for an aviation industry order-crown.

Aside from that, Airbus SE’s Thursday’s (December 5th) company data for November had also added that the European planemaker had delivered a total of 77 aircrafts in November, reaching a figure of 725 deliveries thus far this year, while the world’s No. 2 aircraft carrier maker would require only 135 deliveries to make in December to reach its annual target of 860 jets.
