With a total of 1078 orders, the delivery statistics also highlighted the industry’s leaning towards fleet modernization. Airbus’ global network showcased an impeccable delivery of 661 aircraft from Hamburg to Toulouse.

Celebrations were in the air as Airbus’s A321XLR took its maiden flight from Hamburg. This achievement from the A320neo-family was complemented by Airbus delivering 516 A320-family aircraft from its global hubs.

Qantas Group ordered 12 A350-1000s aimed to bridge cities like Sydney and Melbourne with far-off destinations like London and New York for the airline’s ‘Project Sunrise.’

Airbus’ continued success, as they also logged 24 orders for the newly introduced A350F Freighter version.

The year included new operators like Starlux, Air Greenland, and Condor to the A330neo family. Embodying Airbus’s vision for sustainable aviation, the latest A330neo variant showcased significant reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Also, in 2022, Airbus’ delivery of the 220th A220 – an A220-300 – to JetBlue was another feather in its cap. From advanced aerodynamics to cutting-edge technology, the A220 continues progressing in commercial aviation.
