According to the website DSM Forecast International, Airbus has steadily increased A320 production from 40 per month to 43 in the third quarter of 2021 before ending the year at a rate of 45. Production will be gradually increased until it reaches a monthly rate of 65 by the end of the year. summer 2023. Airbus also discussed a scenario with a rate of 70 by the first quarter of 2024. Longer term, the company is investigating opportunities for rates of up to 75 by 2025. Meanwhile, the A220 is being produced at a rate of five aircraft per month. The rate will be raised to six in early 2022 – with a monthly production rate of 14 expected by mid-decade. Currently, the A350 production rate is five per month and will be increased to six in early 2023. Airbus is currently producing two A330s per month, a rate that will be increased to nearly three aircraft by the end of 2022. In 2021, Airbus launched the new A350 freighter, or A350F, which is an important and much-needed boost to the company's competitiveness in the cargo segment. Boeing has long dominated the cargo space with its 737-800BCF, 767-300BCF, 767-300F, 777F and 747-8F offerings. So far, Airbus has only offered the A330-200F, which has not performed well in competition against Boeing's popular 767-300F. With the launch of the A350F, it looks like Airbus is finally getting serious about capturing more of the cargo aircraft market. The A350F, which carries up to 120 tonnes (109 tonnes) of cargo, received its first order in November and will predominantly compete with the 777F. In comparison, the 777F has a payload capacity of up to 112 tonnes (102 metric tons). On 16 December, Airbus delivered the 251st and final A380 to Emirates. The A380 is an impressive feat of aeronautical engineering and, despite its lack of financial success, will forever be enshrined in the annals of aviation history. With 123 A380s acquired, Emirates has taken delivery of almost half of the A380 fleet and currently operates 121 of the superjumbos.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reviewing Boeing's method of inspecting and evaluating the aircraft to ensure it meets federal safety regulations. The FAA is also reviewing whether modifications are needed on 787s in service; however, the regulator also made it clear that the issue does not pose an immediate threat to flight safety. Recently, new manufacturing defects have been identified and the FAA has issued several memos and warnings. According to Boeing, the company continues to conduct comprehensive inspections of the entire 787 production system and supply chain, while maintaining detailed and transparent discussions with the FAA, suppliers and customers. In November, the leaders of the US House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee called for a government review of the FAA's oversight of the 787. The current production rate for the 787 is approximately two aircraft per month, and Boeing expects to continue at that rate until deliveries resume and then return to five per month over time. It is currently unknown when deliveries will be able to continue. The 777 program will have a new addition in late 2023 with the first delivery of the 777X.
