Airbus orders and deliveries – January 2019

European airframer Airbus began the year with an order deficit. The airline recorded five cancellations for their smallest A220 aircraft and eight for the largest A380.

The A380 cancellation reflected that of Qantas which had been previously announced. Airbus has not disclosed the customer for the cancellation of the A220. However Swiss carrier PrivatAir had ordered five of the then Bombardier CS100 in 2012, the carrier filed for bankruptcy last year.


The airframer delivered 39 aircraft to 27 customers in January 2019 up from 27 of January 2018.

Notable deliveries included:

  • First American Airlines A321neo (which has 100 on order).
  • First Cebu Pacific A321neo.
  • Airbus first ACJ320neo delivered to launch operator Acropolis Aviation.
