Airbus also recorded 39 gross orders, including a new deal for 20 A220 aircraft to an unidentified buyer, Reuters reported.

But the company saw the number of net orders – which are adjusted for cancellations – remain in negative territory during the first quarter, with a total of minus 61 net orders dominated by a Norwegian cancellation revealed in the previous month.
