[PARIS] Airbus said on Tuesday it had rescheduled some single-aisle aircraft deliveries, partly due to a new version of its A321neo jet involving more customisation of its cabins.

A spokesman for the European planemaker was responding to a Reuters report that its Hamburg plant was suffering fresh delivery delays as a result of the new snags, even as it recovers from previous delays in engine supplies.

In an emailed statement, the spokesman said a combination of the number of A320-family aircraft still waiting to be delivered in the wake of the engine problems, the new A321neo version and a simultaneous increase in overall production had "led to some rescheduling of aircraft deliveries".

Airline customers have been informed about the delays, the spokesman added.
