On Thursday (January 11, 2024), Airbus reported their 2023 commercial aircraft orders and deliveries.  In 2023, the company delivered 735 commercial aircraft, a year-over-year increase of 11 percent.  Airbus also received 2,319 gross orders (2,094 net orders), including 1,835 A320 Family and 300 A350 Family aircraft.  At December 31, 2023, the company’s commercial order backlog stood at 8,598 aircraft.  Airbus will report their full-year 2023 financial results on February 15, 2023.

In Thursday’s announcement, Airbus’ CEO, Guillaume Faury, said,

“2023 was a landmark year for Airbus’ Commercial Aircraft business with exceptional sales and deliveries on the upper end of our target.  A number of factors came together to help us achieve our goals, including the increased flexibility and capability of our global industrial system, as well as the strong demand from airlines to refresh their fleets with our most modern and fuel-efficient aircraft.  This is a remarkable achievement.  My thanks goes to our customers, supplier partners and all the Airbus teams who made it happen.”

Also commenting on the company’s 2023 orders and deliveries, Airbus’ newly appointed CEO – Commercial Aircraft, Christian Scherer, said,

“We originally anticipated aviation to recover sometime in the 2023-2025 timeframe, but what we saw in 2023 was, alongside the single-aisle market, widebody return much sooner than expected, and with vigour.  A big thumbs up to our commercial and regional teams, and importantly, a big thank you to our customers for their trust and partnership.  We have never sold as many A320s or A350s in any given year, not to mention welcoming seven new customers for the A350-1000.  Travel is back and there is serious momentum!  I’m proud to say there are now 735 more fuel-efficient Airbus jets flying today, paving the way to our lower carbon future.  It’s the orders we win today that will support us in investing in innovative and even more sustainable solutions tomorrow.”
