Airbus owner EADS reported a first quarter net loss of €12m (£10.5m).
The European aerospace and defence giant’s loss comes after a €103m profit last year.
EADS expects to deliver 530 commercial aircraft in 2011 which the company said will boost its figures, the company said.
Chief executive Louis Gallois, said: “Our first quarter financial results reflect a good start to 2011.
“The acquisition of Vector Aerospace in Canada is a major step forward in expanding our services offering,” he added.
They should have higher full year revenue than 2010, by the end of this 2011.
