Following the results of the third quarter, the largest aerospace concern in Europe, Airbus Group, reported an increase in net profit 3.1 times compared to the same quarter a year earlier to 957 million euros. Factors such as the acquisition of the Canadian Bombardier business and strong demand for the company's aircraft had a favorable effect on the indicator. EBIT amounted to 1 billion 560 million euros, rising 3.4 times over the year. During the earnings period, Airbus increased its revenue by 20% to 15 billion 450 million euros. The company also reported that it ended 9 months of the year with a 4% increase in profits and 6% in revenues. During this period, the number of aircraft delivered to customers increased to 503 units from 454 units a year earlier. However, helicopters managed to deliver only 218, which is 266 units less than last year.
