Airbus is expected to produce a minimum of 605 planes in 2021, with the ultimate amount possibly increasing to 611 based on the conclusions of the final inspection.
Airbus has exceeded its yearly delivery target of 600 planes, retaining its advantage over Boeing in the United States. Throughout an epidemic, commodities are seen as crucial to raising funds.
After the stocks end on Monday, Airbus will publish an update on orders and deliveries, while Boeing statistics will be revealed on Tuesday.
Production volumes in 2022
With Airbus confident of meeting its 11-unit goal by 2021, the attention has shifted to narrow-body aircraft manufacturing and delivery in 2022.
According to analysts, Airbus did not disclose a production projection for 2022, but it is projected to be greater than 2021.
Airbus boosted its baseline production schedule for the A320 family of narrow-body aircraft to 65 units per month by the summer of 2023 in October. Its plan to raise manufacturing to 75 units per month is at odds with engine makers led by France’s Safran.
In May, Airbus said it is urging suppliers to secure a flat rate of 64 per month by the second quarter of 2023, up from a planned rate of 45 in the fourth quarter of 2021.
