Airbus delivered record number of planes in 2017

In the last month of 2017 Airbus booked 776 aircraft sales net of cancellations including a $50 billion deal for 430 narrow-body aircraft initially announced in November at the Dubai Air Show

Airbus achieved 1,109 net orders from 44 customers during the year - representing a book-to-bill ratio of 1.5. Boeing delivered 763 aircraft past year, beating its own 2015 record by one. Airbus posted 1,229 gross or unadjusted orders compared with Boeing's 1,053.

Plane making chief Fabrice Bregier said engine supplier Pratt & Whitney had turned the corner on delays that had disrupted single-aisle aircraft output, and predicted close to 800 deliveries in 2018.

'A new Airbus delivery record coupled with our fourth best order intake wraps up a remarkable year for us.

Chief operating officer for customers John Leahy, during the briefing, said the market was "challenging" for both Airbus and Boeing in the high-capacity sector.
