Airbus to miss delivery target for A320neos in 2018

Airbus will miss the delivery target for A320neo family units powered by Pratt & Whitney 1100G engines due to the delays caused by the issues with the powerplants, Bloomberg has reported.

Airbus has denied to confirm that it will miss the delivery target and has reiterated that its target for the type's deliveries for 2018 remains at 800 units.

Originally, the European manufacturer had planned to deliver around 210 PW1100G-powered A320neos during the remainder of 2018. The Pratt & Whitney powerplant is one of two available engine options for the type, the other being CFM International LEAPs.
