Reuters exclusively reports Airbus tells suppliers to get ready for 18% output hike in 2022

Reuters exclusively reported that Airbus is asking key suppliers to get ready for a further 18% increase in A320-family jet output by the end of 2022, on top of existing targets for this year, as airlines eye a partial return to normal travel. While the number being floated for the end of next year remains informal, it is the first concrete indication of the shape of recovery that the world’s largest planemaker hopes to achieve for benchmark single-aisle jets beyond the end of this year, as it tries to replenish coffers emptied by the pandemic.
