The world's largest aircraft manufacturer intends to deliver around twenty fewer machines than planned in 2022. Nevertheless, new orders are coming in – most of them from China.

The world's largest aircraft manufacturer Airbus delivered significantly fewer machines in July than in the month before due to bottlenecks at suppliers.

The Dax group handed over 46 commercial jets to its customers in the past month after 60 in June, as announced on Monday evening in Toulouse.

Because suppliers can hardly keep up with their deliveries, Airbus boss Guillaume Faury cut his plans for 2022 at the end of July and only expects 700 deliveries instead of 720.

Meanwhile, the manufacturer won orders for 401 new machines in July, with nearly 300 machines going to China.

In return, Airbus booked cancellations of four jets.

Disagreements with Qatar Airways

Still included in the order book is a remaining order from Arab carrier Qatar Airways for 19 widebody A350s.

According to industry circles, the manufacturer has now terminated the contract with its major customer after months of public disputes about damage to the surface of several machines in the series.

Qatar Airways sued the world's largest aircraft manufacturer in London in December for damages due to the defects and publicly described them as a safety problem.

However, Airbus and the European aviation authority Easa judged the matter differently.

The manufacturer offered to repair the damage at its own expense, but Qatar Airways declined.
