Airbus takes first long-haul order of the year

The aircraft manufacturer continues to fill its order book, which includes nearly 7,000 aircraft.

Hard hit by the health crisis, which ground planes for months and weakened its customers, Airbus is finding its colors. Until now, it has mainly accumulated medium-haul orders. On Monday, it obtained an order from Lufthansa for five wide-bodied A350s, the firsts of the year for a long-haul aircraft, the segment most durably affected by the crisis.

In total, the group has recorded seven orders for commercial aircraft since the start of the week. The other two orders are for A 320s for the Mexican low-cost company Volaris. Since January, the aircraft manufacturer has obtained 94 orders. In May, it shipped 50 devices, twice as many as in the same month in 2020, when the world was under wraps. This figure remains far from the 81 planes delivered two years ago. Deliveries are a relatively reliable indicator of future profitability in aeronautics. Customers pay most of the bill at the time
