TOULOUSEThe commercial aircraft division of the European planemaker Airbus delivered around 560 aircraft to its customers last year. The final audited numbers are due for release next week.



Airbus declined to comment before the audited figures are published. Auditors consider such factors as when the final bank transfer is made in determining when a plane can be considered delivered.

The 2020 total is well short of the record 863 aircraft that Airbus handed over to customers in 2019, but it still would be considered a success despite the widespread groundings of fleets as Covid-19 wiped out demand for travel.

The deliveries put Airbus comfortably ahead of its rival Boeing, which handed over 118 aircraft by the end of November.
