TOULOUSE, FRANCE — Airbus today announced that it would deliver fewer aircraft in 2022 than previously targeted but preserved its financial forecast for year-end.

The European planemaker had complained about the disruption at its factories due to supply chain issues. The lack of materials and parts forced the manufacturer to slow down its production rate. Airbus said its previous goal of around 700 aircraft deliveries in 2022 was no longer feasible.

The manufacturer has so far delivered 563 aircraft. The delivery crunch prompted a hazy output projection for the coming year. Airbus reaffirmed a provisional production target of 65 A320neo-family jets a month but revoked its implementation date, saying instead that it would reach that level over the course of 2023 and 2024, depending on the circumstances.

The airframer had previously planned to produce 65 aircraft per month from mid-2023 and increase it to 75 in 2024.

Some analysts and suppliers say the situation is still fragile as the industry suffers due to missing parts or planning problems, and this may continue throughout 2023.

Airbus registered 29 new orders and 14 cancellations in November.
