Airbus delivered 661 commercial aircraft to 84 customers in 2022 and registered 1,078 gross new orders. the OEM’s December 2022 backlog stood at 7,239 aircraft. The year was the fourth in a row that the European OEM ended as the world’s biggest jet manufacturer.

The A220 won 127 firm gross new orders. The A320neo Family won 888 gross new orders. In the widebody segment, the company won 63 gross new orders including 19 A330s and 44 A350s of which 24 were for the newly launched A350F.

“In 2022 we served 84 customers with 661 deliveries, an increase of 8 percent compared to 2021. That’s obviously less than we were targeting but given the complexity of the operating environment I want to thank the teams and our partners for the hard work and the ultimate result,” said Guillaume Faury, Airbus Chief Executive Officer. “The significant order intake covering all our aircraft families including freighters, reflects the strength and competitiveness of our product line. We continue our ramp-up trajectory to deliver on our backlog.”

Airbus managed to secure orders for 1,078 new jets throughout the year, which resulted in a net total of 820 after cancellations. Boeing, on the other hand, delivered 480 aircraft, while securing orders for 935 aircraft resulting in net orders for 774 aircraft after cancellations. For the first time since 2017, the combined sales of both Airbus and Boeing topped the 2,000-unit mark, excluding cancellations.
