Airbus deliveries rose 2% in first half, sources say

PARIS (Reuters) – Airbus delivered a preliminary total of around 67 airplanes in June, bringing the total for the first half of the year to around 323 aircraft, up 2% from the same period last year, industry sources said on Monday.

Airbus, which last week cut its delivery forecast for the full year to 770 planes from 800 amid supply chain concerns, declined to comment ahead of the release of monthly and half-yearly data expected on July 8.
