In the first eight months of this year, Airbus accumulated net orders for a total of 1,218 aircraft, with 146 of them being widebodies.
Airbus also delivered 433 aircraft during the same period, including 52 in August. The company’s objective is to achieve a total of 720 deliveries by the end of the year.
In July, Airbus continued to demonstrate robust activity in the single-aisle category, securing reservations for 36 aircraft destined for the Turkish budget airline Pegasus Airlines.
Icelandair’s order placement for 13 A321neos also achieved a noteworthy milestone. This move departed from Icelandair’s previous exclusivity with Boeing, having operated 757s, 767s, and 737 MAX jets before the Airbus agreement.
With these developments, Airbus has accumulated a total of 1,101 net orders for aircraft in the current year, with a significant portion consisting of over 950 A320neo-family units.
