Airbus shares jumped as much as 7 percent on Thursday (May 27).
That as it set out sweeping new goals to expand production of jetliners.
The world's largest planemaker is exploring an almost two-fold increase in the output of its best-selling single-aisle jets by the middle of the decade.
Lifting it from current crisis-depressed levels.
Airbus will increase single-aisle A320neo production by more than 10% by the end of this year.
And gave suppliers a firm new target of 64 a month by the second quarter of 2023.
Demand for single-aisle jets is recovering as domestic travel rebounds, particularly in the United States and China.
In anticipation of a continued recovery, Airbus is asking its suppliers to "enable a scenario" where it can produce 70 single-aisle jets a month by 2024.
Long-haul travel on larger planes though is expected to be slower to recover.
Airbus said its wide-bodied A330 family is excluded from the higher production ambitions and will stay at two a month.
Analysts descried the fresh goals as "punchy".
But some of the company's network of 8,000 suppliers were reportedly less optimistic.
The production ramp-up has already led to a stand-off between some suppliers and Airbus.
It's over who should bear the risk of investments needed to lift the industry out of the crisis.
