Airbus Just Delivered Its 1,000th Airbus A320neo

Airbus’ A320neo programme has just hit another historical milestone. Today, Airbus revealed that it had just delivered its 1,000th aircraft in the A320neo family.
The aircraft was an A321neo which was produced in the Hamburg branch of the Airbus manufacturing site. A spokesperson for Airbus told us about the delivery.
“The 1000th delivery is a key milestone in Airbus’ strategy of employing incremental innovation to respond to market needs for aircraft with reduced fuel burn, reduced noise and increased productivity.”
They went on to say that the delivery was also a testament to the market-wide success Airbus has had with aircraft orders. As of last month, the manufacturer had 6,660 firm orders for A320neo Family aircraft. The Airbus spokesperson said:
“It is also a milestone in the production ramp up of our aircraft programmes which has seen yearly deliveries rise every year since 2003. In 2018, Airbus delivered 800 aircraft (an Airbus record) and the target is to surpass this in 2019.”
It is a historical day for the aircraft manufacturer as it continues to achieve its goals with the A320neo programme. In the release, Airbus also went on to say that it was happy with how the programme has progressed.
