Airbus maintains production lead over Boeing

Airbus maintained its market share dominance over Boeing in 2011 when it produced 534 passenger jets. The figure exceeded its 2011 financial target of 520-530 aircraft and came in the year that the company received orders for 1,608 jets.

Meanwhile Boeing delivered 477 commercial aircraft last year, just short of its target of around 480 deliveries.

The 5 percent rise from 2010 figures comes as both companies plan further increases to meet demand from emerging markets.
