Airbus has reported its deliveries for the first half of 2023, and it sees a rise of some 6%, with total delivered equating to 316 units.
In its forecast for 2023, the European plane maker targeted 720 deliveries, which came off the back of missing 2022’s target despite a last-gasp race to the finish line.
For Airbus, however, supply chain problems have hampered their operations since the pandemic and made producing planes, delivering them and completing routine tasks on time impossible.
However, the company is starting to understand better the methods to navigate the problems and adapt. Adapting within the industry is essential, as analysts warn this is a sign of things to come.
72 planes were delivered, however, in June of 2023, a rise from June 2022 and May’s performance.
The remainder of 2023 will be massively important for Airbus as they look towards achieving their goals. While this is hitting their delivery target, there is more to their plans than just that. Largely increasing production will be a big part of the coming years. However, for the plane maker, supply chain partners need to be fixed for these to be sustainable for the long term.
