European planemaker Airbus reportedly beat its target for aircraft deliveries last year and handed over 498 planes to airlines.

The French newspaper La Tribune reported Airbus plans to better that pace of deliveries this year.
The figures are due to be officially announced at a news conference on 12 January.
