Airbus SE said Tuesday that it delivered more aircraft in 2022 than in the previous year despite withdrawing its full-year target in early December.

The European plane maker said Tuesday that it delivered 661 commercial aircraft in 2022, compared with the 611 it had delivered to customers in 2021.

In early December, Airbus withdrew its 2022 target of delivering around 700 planes, amid what it called a "complex operating environment" which put that target out of reach. It said, at the time, that such conditions would persist for longer than previously expected.

The company acknowledged Tuesday that its year-end deliveries were less than what it had targeted.

Airbus delivered 96 planes in December compared with 68 in November and 60 in October.

Its order backlog stood at 7,239 at the end of 2022, Airbus said.
