Airbus is expecting the single-aisle market to recover faster than the long-haul sector, but the airframer is stressing that the pattern of deliveries is the most difficult part of its business to forecast.
It has not offered any guidance in its newly-issued first-quarter financial statement.
Airbus chief executive Guillaume Faury, speaking on 29 April, said the airframer had been unable to deliver 19 aircraft to Chinese operators in February, as the coronavirus crisis began to take hold, and the company delivered only 36 aircraft worldwide in March.
Airbus is bringing monthly A320 production down to 40 aircraft from 60, but Faury says customer discussion lead him to believe the demand will increase again.
