Airbus Reports 2022 Order and Delivery Totals
During 2022, Airbus delivered 661 commercial aircraft to 84 customers, an eight percent year-over-year increase. The company also booked 1,078 gross orders (820 net orders), and ended the year with a backlog of 7,239 aircraft.
On Tuesday (January 10, 2023), Airbus announced their 2022 order and delivery totals. The company delivered a total of 661 aircraft to 84 customers last year, an eight percent increase versus 2021. Airbus also booked 1,078 gross commercial aircraft (820 net) in 2022. The A220 program won 127 firm gross new orders and the A320neo Family won 888 new gross orders. Airbus also won 63 new gross widebody orders in 2022, including 19 A330s and 44 A350s, 24 of which were for the newly launched A350F Freighter. At December 31, 2022, the company’s total order backlog stood at 7,239 aircraft.
In Today’s announcment, Airbus’ Chief Executive Officer, Guillaume Faury, said,
“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. 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.”
*The A350 Family delivery total is after a reduction of two A35-900s previously recorded as sole to Aeroflot in December 2021, for which a transfer was not possible due to international sanctions.
Airbus will report their full year 2022 financial results on February 16, 2023.
