Airbus delivered 566 aircraft in 2020, maintaining its crown as the world’s largest planemaker for a second year as U.S. rival Boeing remained mired for most of that period in the grounding of its 737 MAX, company data showed, APA-Economics reports citing Reuters.

Deliveries from the European planemaker fell 34% from a record 863 in 2019 as the coronavirus crisis hit air travel demand. The announcement confirms a Reuters report on Tuesday that Airbus had delivered more than 560 aircraft in 2020, beating an internal target.
