In the first half of 2024, the Space Systems management team conducted an extensive technical review of all programmes, identifying further commercial and technical challenges.

The Company now intends to deliver around 770 commercial aircraft in 2024 and continues to ramp up towards a rate of 75 A320 Family aircraft per month, which is now expected in 2027.

Accordingly, Airbus is updating its 2024 guidance.

The Company’s 2024 guidance is before M&A.

On that basis, in 2024, the Company now targets to achieve: around 770 commercial aircraft deliveries; EBIT Adjusted of around € 5.5 billion; and Free Cash Flow before Customer Financing of around € 3.5 billion.

The Company’s half-year results will be disclosed on 30 July 2024.
