deliver this result. We also thank our partners and governments
for their strong support to the sector,” said Guillaume Faury,
Airbus Chief Executive Officer. “Based on our 2020 deliveries we
are cautiously optimistic as we look into 2021, although
challenges and uncertainties remain high in the short term.”
