- Commercial aircraft environment robust, backlog underpins ramp-up plans
- H1 financials reflect mainly A350 XWB performance and delivery phasing
- Revenues € 25 billion; EBIT Adjusted € 1.2 billion
- EBIT (reported) € 1.1 billion; EPS (reported) € 0.64
- 2018 guidance maintained
Amsterdam, 26 July 2018 – Airbus SE reported Half-Year 2018 consolidated financial results and maintained its guidance for the full year.
“The first half financials reflect the back-loaded deliveries due to A320neo engine shortages, while on the positive side there was a strong improvement on the A350 programme,” said Airbus Chief Executive Officer Tom Enders. “A320neo aircraft deliveries picked up during the second quarter but challenges remain to meet our full year targets. Market demand remains strong for the expanded Airbus portfolio that now includes the A220 at the smaller end. The recent Farnborough Airshow underlined this, with new business for over 400 single-aisle and wide-body aircraft announced. Our operational focus in commercial aircraft remains squarely on securing the production ramp-up. On our largest military programme, the A400M, we are making progress operationally, on improving capabilities as well as in negotiations with governments for the necessary contract amendment.”
