Airbus delivers only 14 aircraft in April

Airbus has only delivered 14 aircraft for the month of April, which is 80% lower than what it had delivered on the same month last year as the coronavirus crisis grips the aviation industry worldwide.

The deliveries include only two long-haul aircraft, an A350-900 for Japan Airlines and an A330-200 tanker conversion for Airbus's military division.

Most aircraft deliveries comprised of A321neo and A320neo aircraft to Flynas, Azul, Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, IndiGo, and Spirit Airlines,

In comparison, Airbus delivered 70 aircraft in the month of April 2019.

The aircraft manufacturer only received a single order of 9 A320neo family aircraft from Avolon, an aircraft lessor. In total for the first four months of 2020, Airbus only received a net order of 299.

In a report from FlightGlobal, Airbus had delivered 136 aircraft by the end of April, nearly 100 fewer than the 232 deliveries it had achieved by the same point last year. Compared with 2019 single-aisle deliveries are down 40% while long-haul deliveries have nearly halved.
