Airbus: Emirates A380 order secures production out to 2027

    Airbus reported (15-Feb-2018) Emirates‘ recent order for 20 A380 aircraft “provides increased visibility on the A380 programme for the years to come”. Airbus president and CEO Tom Enders said the order means Airbus has “secured enough orders to achieve our goals in terms of deliveries” and is committed to produce the A380 out to 2027 (Reuters/ainonline.com, 15-Feb-2018). Airbus plans to deliver 12 A380s in 2018, falling to eight in 2019. If Airbus is unable to secure more A380 orders, output will fall to six p/a by 2020. [more – original PR]
