Airbus delivered 735 commercial aircraft to customers last year, above the 720 target the company had set itself, thanks to strong orders for both narrow- and wide-body planes from airlines scrambling to meet air-travel demand.

The European plane maker said Thursday that it delivered 68 of its A220 planes and 571 A320s, both narrow-body aircraft types, in 2023. For its wide-body models, Airbus delivered 32 A330s, and 64 A350s.

Airbus had shipped 623 planes through November, meaning it delivered the remaining 112 in December alone. The company had originally hoped to achieve 720 deliveries in 2022 but was forced to shelve that goal due to supply-chain woes.

In the end, it handed 661 planes to customers that year, short of a downgraded target of around 700. The aviation industry has been grappling for months with supply-chain challenges that have made it harder to procure some spare parts and raw materials.
