Global aviation major Airbus provisionally exceeded its target of 600 jet deliveries in 2021, with final totals depending on a still incomplete audit, reported Reuters, citing industry sources.

Deliveries included a flurry of last-minute activity for A350 wide-bodied jets, for which demand has been slack as international travel remains dogged by the coronavirus crisis, stated the report.

Deliveries of aircraft went down to the wire, with several handovers completed on Dec 31, according to specialist website Hamburg Finkenwerder News and flight-tracking data.

Airbus declined to comment.

This brings December's tally for the long-haul jets to about a dozen, though almost half of those have yet to enter operational service, according to Flightradar24 tracking data, said the Reuters report.

Airbus deliveries frequently surge in the final month of the year, but supply chain problems have hampered deliveries of some medium-haul jets while the spread of Omicron has raised fresh doubts over the likelihood of an early rebound in long-haul travel, it added.
