European commercial aircraft builder Airbus booked 29 orders in March and delivered 46 aircraft during the month, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The new orders were placed by Cathay Pacific Airways (0293.HK), which asked for 15 new A330-300 airliners; and by Turkish Airlines, the company said.
Airbus' deliveries in the month included two super jumbos to Germany's Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA.XE).
During the first three months of the year, the company--a division of European Aeronautic Defense & Space Co NV (EAD.FR)--delivered 119 aircraft over the first quarter and booked one net order as 68 cancellations during the period almost offset the 69 orders made.
