Air­bus like­lier to hit de­liv­ery goal

Houston Chronicle - - BUSINESS -

Air­bus SE’s ef­forts to speed up jet de­liv­er­ies are bear­ing fruit, with a bumper Novem­ber tally of 89 planes handed to cus­tomers, mak­ing it more likely that the com­pany will achieve its full-year goal.

The num­ber was 15 higher than in Novem­ber 2017, ac­cord­ing to data pub­lished Fri­day, suggest­ing that the Euro­pean plane­maker is fi­nally get­ting a grip on glitches that slowed out­put ear­lier in the year.

Air­bus is seek­ing to make 800 de­liv­er­ies in 2018 af­ter shrink­ing the tar­get from 820 at its thirdquar­ter earn­ings up­date.
