Airbus: aircraft orders and deliveries in 2022
7239 airplanes in backlog
Airbus delivered 661 commercial aircraft (after a reduction of two A-350/900s Aeroflot previously recorded as sold in December 2021 for which a transfer was not possible due to international sanctions against Russia) to 84 customers in 2022 and registered 1,078 gross new orders. Its end December 2022 backlog stood at 7,239 airplanes.
The industry equally won 1,078 new orders (820 net) across all programmes and market segments, including several high profile commitments from some of the world’s leading carriers. In aircraft units, Airbus recorded a net book to bill ratio significantly above one.
Per programme, the A-220 won 127 firm gross new orders. The A-320neo Family won 888 gross new orders. In the widebody segment, the company won 63 gross new orders including 19 A-330s and 44 A-350s of which 24 were for the newly launched A-350F.
The 2022 full year financial results will be disclosed on 16 February 2023.
