Airbus delivers just ten A380s in 2009

31-Dec-2009 11:40 AM

Airbus confirmed it delivered just ten A380s in 2009, two less than in 2008, after initially forecasting up to 21 A380s would be delivered this year (Bloomberg, 30-Dec-2009). The manufacturer made downwards revisions to its A380 delivery forecast for the year four times. It plans to deliver “about 20” A380s in 2010, with a firm target to be announced in mid-Jan-2010. Air France, Qantas and Emirates are scheduled to receive more A380s in early 2010.
