Airbus beats boeing to become the world’s biggest aircraft company

As Boeing is mired in controversies after two fatal crashes involving its 737 Max 8, Airbus becomes world’s biggest aircraft company. For the first time since 2011, Airbus has managed to defeat Boeing as it delivered 863 aircraft in 2019.  US aerospace giant set its delivery target at 860 aircraft. However, it deployed extra resources to go beyond its revised target. Of the total 863 aircraft, 640 are single-aisle-aircraft.

Experts in the aviation industry have predicted that Airbus’s hegemony in the aerospace sector will prevail for years to come as 737 Max 8 will haunt Boeing for a long time.
