Airbus SE delivered about 55 aircraft last month, according to people familiar with the matter, leaving the planemaker some way to go to meet its annual delivery target.

Airbus stuck to a revised goal of 700 deliveries for 2022 at a capital markets day last month, despite having reached just over half of that target in the first eight months of the year. The September tally would take shipments this year to around 437, leaving more than 250 aircraft to ship in the final three months of the year.
