Airbus has admitted that owing to a complex operating environment at the moment, it is likely to miss its targeted delivery of “around 700” commercial aircraft this year, albeit marginally.
This month its deliveries totalled 68 units, bringing the total deliveries for the year to 565 aircraft. For 2023 and 2024 the European planemaker anticipates delivering 65 units per month, and is targeting a ramp-up to 75 unit by 2025. In the meantime, Airbus has not changed its guidance presented with the nine-month 2022 results, which basically means guidance for EBIT Adjusted and Free Cash Flow before M&A and Customer Financing remains unchanged.
The full year 2022 Airbus commercial aircraft orders and deliveries will be disclosed – after audit – on January 10, 2023. Full Year results will be disclosed on February 16, 2023. In November 2022 Airbus also registered 29 new orders and 14 cancellations bringing the backlog to 7,344 aircraft.
