TOULOUSE, FRANCEEuropen planemaker Airbus delivered 50 airplanes in May, bringing its total so far in 2021 to 220 jets, and announced a new order for five A350 aircraft from Lufthansa.



The number of planes delivered in May was 38% higher than in the same period last year. Deliveries included the first A380 superjumbo to Dubai’s Emirates since December 2020.

On the Lufthansa order, Airbus data released on Monday showed that the German airline had also simultaneously canceled three previous A350 orders, resulting in a net addition of two A350 jets. An Airbus spokesman confirmed the mix of cancellations and orders.

In total, Airbus has won 94 orders so far this year, but it posted a negative total of 31 after adjusting for cancellations.
