EADS: “Progressive recovery in traffic and yield especially in emerging markets should first stabilise airline financials before it leads to additional ordering activity. Based on a number of active campaigns, which should lead to 250-300 new gross orders in 2010 and a stable overbooked backlog on single aisle aircraft, Airbus decided to increase production rate from 34 to 36 aircraft per month on single aisles starting in December 2010 while keeping the long range programme production rates roughly stable at around 8 aircraft per month. In 2010, Airbus expects to deliver up to the same level of aircraft as in 2009 and new gross orders should range between 250 and 300 aircraft,” Company statement. Source: EADS, 09-Mar-2010.
