Airbus will report a 6% increase in deliveries in its first half reports for 2023, according to industry sources.
Reuters has reported that the French aircraft manufacturer will have delivered 316 aircraft in the first six months of 2023, compared to 297 in the same period for 2022.
Sources also revealed that delivery numbers in June were up 20% from last year with 72 planes delivered by Airbus through the month.
The company has already publicly marked a strong start to the year in its orders department after receiving orders for over 800 aircraft at the Pairs Air Show alone.
Though the numbers are already up on last year, Airbus still has a way to go to reach its target of delivering 720 commercial aircraft for the year, something that the company will be keen to do after failing to reach its 2022 target.
Despite post-pandemic supply chain issues affecting output, aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing are looking to ramp up production in response to wider industry demand as airlines look to recover from pandemic slumps and move forward with fleet replacements.
