The European aircraft manufacturer Airbus was able to deliver significantly fewer machines in April 2021 - in direct comparison with March 2021. The manufacturer announced that 45 commercial aircraft could be handed over to customers. In March there were still 72 pieces.
In the first four months of the current year, Airbus was able to deliver a total of 170 machines. In April 2021, 48 new orders were also landed. At the same time, customers also canceled orders for 22 commercial aircraft. Due to the corona pandemic, production is currently running at only 60 percent of capacity. This is to be increased to the pre-crisis level again by the summer.
