Airbus Reports 30 Deliveries in January and Receives 31 New Orders

Airbus kicked off 2024 with a strong performance, reporting a significant increase in both deliveries and orders in January. The European aviation giant delivered 30 commercial jets, marking a 50% rise compared to the same month last year. Additionally, Airbus secured 31 new orders, further bolstering its backlog and future production plans.


The positive momentum was driven by robust demand across various aircraft families. Notably, Delta Air Lines placed a major order for 20 A350-1000 widebody jets, showcasing continued confidence in the fuel-efficient model. Furthermore, Airbus confirmed a previous commitment from the Dubai Airshow for 11 A350-900 aircraft, solidifying its presence in the key Middle Eastern market.

"These encouraging results demonstrate the resilience of our commercial aircraft business and the positive response to our product portfolio," said Guillaume Faury, Airbus Chief Executive Officer. "We are seeing recovery across all segments, with airlines returning to service more aircraft and gradually investing in fleet renewal and expansion."


The upbeat January performance follows a challenging 2023 for Airbus, marked by supply chain disruptions and geopolitical uncertainties. However, the company navigated these obstacles effectively, maintaining production stability and securing key orders. The strong start to 2024 suggests that Airbus is well-positioned to capitalize on the expected rebound in the global air travel market. Airbus remains cautiously optimistic about the future, highlighting the ongoing recovery in air travel demand and the need for fleet modernization. The company continues to focus on ramping up production, managing supply chain challenges, and delivering on its order backlog. While geopolitical uncertainties and economic headwinds persist, Airbus' strong start to 2024 provides a positive outlook for the year ahead.
