Pandemie lässt Flugzeuglieferungen in den Keller rasseln
July 16, 2020 -
Boeing lieferte 70 Flugzeuge, während Rivale Airbus 196 Stück in der ersten Hälfte 2020 ausliefern konnte, im Vergleich waren es 2019 noch jeweils 239 und 389 Stück. Boeings Lieferungen fielen nach dem Grounding seiner 737 MAX. Boeing will sein Q2 Ergebnis am Mittwoch, 29. Juli, bekanntgeben.
The summer months usually see a surge in orders with the biannual air shows in Britain and France. This year the Farnborough International Airshow has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Aerospace giants Airbus and Boeing sold just one aircraft in June, as the pandemic’s economic impact on the aviation industry and the grounded 737 MAX scandal continue to affect order books. FedEx bought a solitary Boeing 767 cargo aircraft.
Boeing delivered just 20 commercial jets in the second quarter, the lowest for a quarter since 1977. Those deliveries included seven 787 Dreamliners and four 777 aircraft.
Boeing’s deliveries have suffered for many months in the aftermath of two 737 MAX disasters and the grounding of the global fleet. Shipments of 737 MAX aircraft have been on hold since March 2019.
European aerospace giant Airbus reported no new orders in June -- the second straight month without a sale.
