Airbus deliveries for May appear on course to reach at least 60 aircraft, subject to the final tally of a busy close to the month and a routine audit, industry sources said.

That represents an increase of some 30% from the same month last year and would bring deliveries so far this year to more than 220 aircraft.

Airbus, which is targeting 720 deliveries for the full year, implying a sharp acceleration in deliveries after the summer, declined comment ahead of a monthly data release on June 7. (Reporting by Tim Hepher Editing by David Goodman )
