Following an agreement reached between Emirates
Airline and Rolls-Royce as well as a consecutive agreement between
Emirates Airline and Airbus, the Toulouse-based aircraft
manufacturer is to adapt its A380 delivery stream.
Airbus has postponed six
aircraft deliveries from 2017 to 2018 and six others
from 2018 to 2019.
Airbus still expects to deliver
around 12 A380s per year from 2018 as announced earlier in July
Airbus said that further fixed cost reduction initiatives will be
accelerated so the impact on break-even in 2017 is minimal.
