Airbus says it has exceeded its targets for 2015.

The plane maker achieved a new record of 635 aircraft deliveries for 85 customers of which 10 are new.

These deliveries comprise:

491 A320 Family aircraft;

103 A330s;

27 A380s;

14 A350 XWBs.

Aircraft deliveries in 2015 were up for the 13th year in a row, surpassing the previous year-end delivery record of 629 aircraft – set in 2014.
Airbus also achieved 1,036 net orders from 53 customers, eight of which are new,

By the end of 2015 Airbus had £688.8 billion worth of planes on its order books.

Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO said:

“This commercial and industrial performance unequivocally proves that global demand for our aircraft has remained resilient.” He adds: “In 2015 Airbus has also laid firm foundations for the future, increasing the capability and variety of the aircraft which we can offer to our customers.”

Last October Airbus said it was ‘ramping up’ production of its A320 planes to 60 a month by mid 2016 increasing the number of wings built at Broughton .

They currently produce 42 A320 planes a month.[/x_columnize][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section]
