Airbus did not receive any orders for commercial jets in February, mirroring Boeing’s zero-order month in January.

The confirmation from Airbus is a sizable drop compared to January, when it received 274 orders.

But Airbus still delivered 55 aircraft to 35 customers, bringing its total for the year so far to 86.

Boeing’s February was brighter, having received an order for 12 Dreamliners from a Japanese airline.

Orders for Airbus jets in 2020 have been for A220, A320 and A350 XWB jets.

Last month, Airbus delivered 40 A320s, four A220s, seven A350 XWBs and two A330s. Among the month’s notable deliveries was the first A350-900 delivered to Aeroflot.

Customers in North Africa and the Middle East received jets, including EgyptAir, getting its first A320neo on lease from Aercap and Saudi’s Flyadeal taking delivery of its first A320neo.

Airbus’ backlog of aircraft remaining to be delivered as of 29 February stood at 7,670.
