Airbus, which in recent weeks has received a flood of aircraft orders, sees signs that airlines are emerging from the crisis, although the recovery is focused for now on short-haul routes and the omicron variant may involve new restrictions.

In an interview published Sunday in Le Journal du Dimanche, CEO Guillaume Faury believes that these contracts “are a strong sign” at a time when “airlines are beginning to emerge from the crisis and prepare for the future”.

Faury notes that fleet renewal is a “decisive” element for airlines to reduce their emissions, and this is precisely one of the trends to which they will have to adjust in the coming years.

Last Thursday, the European aircraft manufacturer won a double battle against its eternal rival, Boeing, by winning two orders from regular customers of the U.S. group.

Nevertheless, Faury insists on being cautious because the situation “remains fragile, as shown by the new restrictions and the omicron variant”.
