Airbus lags Boeing in 2017 deliveries, but wins more orders

Airbus delivered record number of planes in 2017

"We see a lot of potential not only for the A380 but also other models like the wide-body aircraft", he said at the teleconference on the Airbus' Commercial Aircraft deliveries in 2017 performance, today.

But speaking during a briefing on last year's activity, commercial aircraft president Fabrice Bregier says that the airframer has drawn up an "industrially robust" process to take annual production down to just six. Airbus wants a guarantee from Emirates for a long-term order whereas Emirates want to ensure that the A380 continues to be produced so as to protect their investment.

"Quite honestly...if we can't work out a deal with Emirates, there is no choice but to shut down the programme", Airbus' outgoing chief salesman John Leahy told reporters via web cast on Monday. Airbus posted 1,229 gross or unadjusted orders compared with Boeing's 1,053.

The planemaker, based in Toulouse, France, also reported that it delivered 718 planes in 2017, fewer than Boeing's 763 but still a record for Airbus.

"It's a strong market and it's recovering".

In the last month of 2017 Airbus booked 776 aircraft sales net of cancellations, including a $50 billion deal for 430 A320-series narrow-body aircraft initially announced in November at the Dubai Air Show. Aircraft sales are commonly made at confidential negotiated prices.

Brégier said Airbus would deliver 12 units of A380s and eight units in 2019, citing that it is projecting a flexible production with limit.

Airbus's delivery tally meant it met a target of handing over at least 700 planes in the year, something that had appeared a major challenge amid engine issues with the upgraded A320neo, mostly at US supplier Pratt & Whitney.

"Every 15 years, air traffic doubles", he said.

The 2017 total includes 558 single-aisle A320 Family (181 A320neos), 67 A330s, 78 A350 XWBs and 15 A380s.

However, Leahy, who will retire this month, said the company could have an order for the double decker plane "within the next month or two" with an unnamed new customer.

Airbus claimed a 51% overall market share based on public list prices.
