Airbus delivers 64 jets in November, down 34 per cent so far this year

On Monday, Airbus SE, the Leiden, Netherlands-headquartered world’s No. 1 low-cost aircraft carrier manufacturer, that has long been a centrepiece of a US-EU trade spat over airline subsidiaries, said that the Eurozone’s flagship aerospace company had delivered 64 jets last month, remarking a dive in deliveries by almost 34 per cent on a year-on-year basis as a pandemic resurgence at large coupled with a international travel restriction had taken a heavier toll on demands.

Apart from that, Airbus SE, the European planemaker which had obtained the global aviation industry crown last year following a steep plunge in orders and deliveries on its American rival, Boeing Co., alongside a mass-grounding of the American planemaker’s best-selling 737 Max over potential glitches at its autopilot software, had been quoted saying in the statement that its November deliveries had included seven wide-body A350 jets alongside 56 single-aisle planes, among which 54 jets were belonged to its A320neo narrow-body family.

Nonetheless, Boeing Co. could not make any deliveries last month, however, a decline in Airbus SE’s deliveries had been heavily scrutinized since the planemaker had received a much-required monetary stimulus to see through the pandemic outbreak.

On top of that, latest Airbus SE report has been well in line with an analysts’ forecast that predicted the eurozone’s flagship aircraft carrier maker would tally a total of 550 or more deliveries this year.

Nevertheless, Airbus SE November deliveries fell roughly 17 per cent on an annualized basis, while on a monthly basis, Airbus SE deliveries had retreated from an October reading of 72 deliveries.

Concomitantly, Airbus SE could not make any sales in November, remarking a fourth time the European planemaker had botched to post new businesses in a month since the pandemic-led restrictions inclined on March this year.
