Airbus Is Beating Boeing In The Race For New Orders


-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

Airbus (Paris:AIR) outmuscled Boeing (NYSE:BA) in aircraft orders last year.

The European planemaker had 1,109 net orders for new airliners in 2017, beating Boeing's 912. It's the fifth consecutive year Airbus has beaten its rival in orders, though it still trails it in deliveries. After trailing Boeing for much of the year, Airbus managed to get its nose ahead thanks to a period of frenetic selling in the last weeks of 2017 when it closed a massive $50 billion deal for 430 narrow-body aircraft from Indigo Partners.

That deal involves the sale of 273 A320neos and 157 A321neos and they will be split between Wizz Air, Frontier, Volaris and JetSmart. Airbus also increased physical deliveries to customers for the 15th consecutive year, handing over 718 aircraft. Boeing still has the bragging rights as the world's biggest manufacturer, however, having delivered a record 763 aircraft in 2017.
