The statistic highlights the Airbus’s Deliveries by Aircraft Type starting from Q1 FY 2016 to the end of the year 2018.
Airbus SE (BMAD: AIR) is a European multinational aerospace corporation. As of 2019, Airbus became the world’s largest airliner manufacturer and took the most airliner orders. Airbus is incorporated in the Netherlands, while its shares are trading in Germany, France, and Spain. It manufactures, designs, and sells military and civil aerospace products worldwide and manufactures aircraft in the European Union (EU) and several other countries. The company broadly has three divisions: Defence and Space, Commercial Aircraft, and Helicopters, the third being the largest in its industry in terms of revenues and turbine helicopter deliveries.
There are broadly four types of aircraft that the company manufactures. The first one is the Airbus A320, which is a narrow-body aircraft designed and produced by Airbus. Next is the Airbus A330 is a wide-body aircraft made by Airbus. The Airbus A350 XWB adds next to the family of long-range, wide-body aircraft developed by Airbus. At last, the Airbus A380 is the world’s largest passenger airliner and is a wide-body aircraft manufactured by Airbus.
The year 2016
In the year 2016, Airbus expects to deliver more than 650 aircraft with a mix of all kinds. In Q1, 126 aircraft delivered, and the financials were driven by a back-loaded delivery schedule reflecting a lower A330 delivery rate. Operationally, the company continues to focus on the production ramp-ups of our Airbus A350 and A320 programs. Five A320neos were delivered in Q1 to two customers. The growth was quite fluctuating in the subsequent quarters and tolled the highest level at the end of the quarter with significant improvements in 167 aircraft. In the last quarter, the company made the record deliveries of 688, including 68 A320neos, and 49 A350.
The year 2017
During the year, Airbus expects to deliver more than 700 commercial aircraft. Commercial Aircraft’s revenues rose by 13 percent, with 136 aircraft deliveries, including a higher proportion of A350 XWBs. Significant progress made on the A350 XWB, with 13 aircraft delivered in the quarter. On the A320neo program, 26 aircraft were delivered to 14 customers with its first delivery in April. In the subsequent quarters, the growth pattern was similar to the previous year. In the last quarter, Commercial Aircraft revenues rose by 3.5% with record deliveries of 718 aircraft comprising 558 A320 aircraft, 78 A350 XWBs, 67 A330s, and 15 A380s. A total of 181 A320neo Family aircraft were delivered, up from 68 during 2016.
The year 2018
With a significant drop in the first quarter, the year reported a consistent growth. The Q1 performance reflects the shortage of A320neo engines and back-loaded aircraft deliveries. During the quarter, 45 net commercial aircraft orders received with orders of 68 aircraft, including 20 A380s for Emirates Airlines. Airbus deliveries totaled 121 commercial aircraft comprising 8 A330s, 17 A350 XWBs, 95 A320 Family, and one A380. With major improvements in Models A320 and A350, overall deliveries rose in the subsequent quarters. In the last quarter, due to the lack of airline demand, the company has to wind up production of the A380. At the company, a total of 800 commercial aircraft delivered, comprising 12 A380s, 49 A330s, 626 A320 Family, 93 A350s, and 20 A220s.
