(Reuters) – Gulfstream Aerospace’s president said on Thursday he believes the company’s ability to deliver business jets during the fourth quarter seems unimpeded by the novel coronavirus, even as cases surge globally.

“In the fourth quarter I think we’ll deliver airplanes pretty much as planned,” Mark Burns told a webcast with reporters. “I’m optimistic we’re not going to repeat what occurred in the second quarter when we just couldn’t get deliveries due to travel restrictions or concern by customers.”
