Airbus delivers 700 planes in 2017

LONDON, January 3, 2018

Airbus, the European planemaker, has delivered over 700 aircraft in 2017, breaking company records and meeting its core industrial target for the year, a report said.
Exact figures will be announced on January 15, but the sources said Airbus handed over a record monthly total of jets in December, surpassing the previous monthly peak of 111 seen in the closing weeks of 2016, the Reuters report said.
Coming on top of 591 deliveries posted between January and November last year, that implies deliveries of at least 703 aircraft in 2017 as a whole, up at least 2 percent from 2016, it added.
