Airbus has reportedly beaten its 2009 deliveries target, delivering 498 aircraft, and is planning to deliver a similar number of aircraft in 2010 (Emirates Business 24/7, 05-Jan-2010). However, the company missed its A380 delivery target of 13 aircraft for the year, delivering ten. The manufacturer plans to formally release its deliveries figures on 12-Jan-2010. COO, John Leahy, also stated the company expects a “minimum amount of cancellations” in 2010.
