PARIS (Reuters) – Europe’s Airbus delivered more than 70 jets in June to bring first-half deliveries within a contact distance of the 300 mark, according to industry sources and tracking data.
Between January and May, Airbus delivered a total of 220 aircraft, 38% more compared to the same period in 2020, which was hit hard by coronavirus lockdowns since the end of March.
June’s performance puts the first-half total comfortably above 290 and marks one of the strongest monthly totals since the start of the pandemic, behind a peak of 89 in December 2020, the sources said.
Airbus declined to comment before the release of the first-half deliveries on Thursday.
