Aircraft maker, Airbus Airbus said it delivered 661 commercial aircraft to 84 customers in 2022 and registered 1,078 gross new orders. Airbus’ end December 2022 backlog stood at 7,239 aircraft.

“In 2022 we served 84 customers with 661 deliveries, an increase of 8 percent compared to 2021. That’s obviously less than we were targeting but given the complexity of the operating environment I want to thank the teams and our partners for the hard work and the ultimate result,” said Guillaume Faury, Airbus Chief Executive Officer.

“The significant order intake covering all our aircraft families including freighters reflects the strength and competitiveness of our product line. We continue our ramp-up trajectory to deliver on our backlog.”
