Deliveries, which have been recovering from a pandemic-related slump, rose 51.5 % in the first six months from 196 at the mid-way point of 2020, and compare with a total of 389 in the first half of 2019 before the global health crisis crippled air travel.

The world’s largest planemaker ahead of U.S. rival Boeing also said it had won 165 gross orders in the first half, but this dropped to a net total of 38 after cancellations.
