The A320 series hat the most deliveries bey number with 646 aircraft. 863 aircraft was the total deliveries over all series from A220 to the A380. Because of the successful A320 series they want to increase the production to 63 aircrafts a month until mid 2021.
- 48 – A220 Series
- 646 – A320 Series
- 50 – A330 Series
- 111 – A350 Series
- 8 – A380 Series
Between January 2019 and November Boeing did deliver 345 aircrafts, mostly widebodies. That was more than half of 704 aircrafts in the same period of time in 2018 before.
The end of the year was a lot of fun for Airbus as they got on the Dubai airshow a lot of orders. 222 new orders in the books for Toulouse. 50 A350-900 for Emirates Airlines, 60 A220-300 for Air France to mention tow big ones.
