Huge China Eastern order for 60 Airbus A320NEOS.

China Eastern Airlines ordered 60 Airbus A320s yesterday in what is the second-biggest order won by the European aeroplane maker for A320 aircraft this year. The deal came 11 days after the European Commission (EC) suspended its controversial emissions trading scheme on flights into and out of Europe until at least next autumn.

The airline, mainland China's second-largest carrier by value, said the order was worth US$5.3 billion at list prices, although the carrier added that it received "substantial price concessions".

Airbus also agreed to buy 18 smaller regional jets from China Eastern, which have a book value of 1.54 billion yuan (HK$1.9 billion), for the aircraft manufacturer to sell or lease to airlines.

The A320s, which typically carry about 150 passengers, will be delivered in phases between 2014 and 2017 when they will be deployed on short- and medium-range domestic services. They will replace the eight Canadair and 10 Embraer regional jets that China Eastern has sold to Airbus.

The airline said the disposal of its entire fleet of 50-seat regional jets will streamline the aircraft types operated by the company as well as optimise its fleet structure and lower operating costs. The regional jets have an average age of 8.2 years.

China Eastern Airlines is the world's largest operator of A320s with 130 aircraft in service and 18 already on order before yesterday's purchase announcement, according to Airbus data.

The airline was among the mainland China carriers which boycotted the EC's emissions trading scheme after the Civil Aviation Administration of China ordered carriers not to participate earlier this year.

The emissions trading scheme would have cost Chinese airlines 790 million yuan had it been applied this year, according to aviation industry estimates, rising to 3.7 billion yuan in 2020.

On November 12, the EC proposed deferring the application of the scheme to flights outside Europe until after a meeting of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) general assembly set for autumn 2013. The ICAO is a United Nations body governing global aviation.

China’s Tibet Airlines takes delivery of its first FALC A319

23 November 2012Press Release

China’s Tibet Airlines has taken delivery of its first A319 assembled at the Airbus Tianjin Final Assembly Line (FALC). The A319 delivered today is the fifth A319 to join the all Airbus fleet operated by lhasa based Tibet Airlines. The airline received its first Airbus A319 in July 2011 in Hamburg, Germany.

The newly delivered A319 accommodates 128 passengers in a two-class configuration with eight premium seats and 120 economy seats. The aircraft is powered by CFM56-5B engines.

The aircraft will operate from Lhasa Gongga Airport, which at 12,000 feet in altitude is one of the world’s highest. t o. It will fly the route between Lhasa and Shenzhen, which borders Hong Kong in Southern China with a stop-over in Chengdu, Southwestern China.

The newly introduced A319 is certificated for high altitude airport operation and RNP-AR (Required Navigation Performance – Authorisation Required) and Satcom installed.

RNP-AR procedures represent today the most modern navigation technique, allowing the aircraft to fly precisely along a predefined route using on-board navigation systems and the GPS-based ‘Global Navigation Satellite System’ (GNSS). RNP AR is especially important for airlines operating in and out of high altitude airports. Tibet Airlines has selected Quovadis, an Airbus subsidiary, as its strategic partner for its RNP-AR operations.

“The new aircraft will fly between Shenzhen and Lhasa and contribute to further development of the two areas”, said Yin Huixin, Vice President of Tibet Airlines.

“We are honored that our modern Airbus A319 aircraft will contribute to the development of civil aviation on the Tibetan plateau and I’m really confident that the FALC assembled A319 will serve the need of Tibet Airlines”, said Airbus China President Laurence Barron.

The FALC in Tianjin is based on the latest state-of-the-art Airbus single aisle final assembly line in Hamburg, Germany. The aircraft delivered in China are assembled to the same standards as those assembled and delivered in Europe.
Airbus has delivered 105 Tianjin assembled A320 Family aircraft to 11 operators since the inauguration of the Final Assembly Line in 2008, which is the first Airbus final assembly line outside Europe.

The A320 Family (A318, A319, A320 and A321) is recognized as the benchmark single-aisle aircraft family. With more than 8, 600 aircraft sold, and over 5, 300 aircraft delivered to more than 350 customers and operators worldwide, the A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family. With 99.8 per cent reliability and extended servicing periods, the A320 Family has the lowest operating costs of any single aisle aircraft. Uniquely, the A320 Family offers a containerized cargo system, which is compatible with the worldwide standard wide-body system.

Chinese customer orders Airbus ACJ319

Reinforces Airbus corporate jet presence in China
14 November 2012Press Release
An Airbus ACJ319 with the fuel-saving Sharklet option has been ordered by a Chinese customer, in the first deal for this version from the country. The order builds on the strong Airbus corporate jet presence in greater China, where there are around 25 orders to date.
Airbus corporate jets such as the ACJ318 and ACJ319 are already in widespread service in China, with operators such as BAA Jet Management, Beijing Airlines, China Eastern Executive Aviation, Comlux Asia, Deer Jet, Hong Kong Jet and TAG Aviation.
“China is a relatively new market for corporate jets, as well as having one of the highest economic growth rates, making it a bright spot in today’s business jet market, especially at the top end where Airbus corporate jets serve with distinction,” points out Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, John Leahy. “The Chinese business jet market also favours the ability to carry larger groups, for which Airbus corporate jets are especially well suited.”
Airbus’ ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321 share a similar length and wingspan with competing large business jets, but have the widest and tallest cabin, delivering unequalled comfort, space and freedom of movement.
The wider cabin of Airbus corporate jets allows unique features such as a large circular table that converts to a square one, which is popular in cultures such as China’s because it allows the ideal arrangements for both socialising and playing games such as Mah Jong.
Airbus corporate jets also come from a good family – the world’s most modern – which means that they deliver inherently good value, with many standard features that are lacking in other business jets. These include pilot and mechanic friendly common cockpits, fly by wire controls and centralised maintenance. Other features include a richer baseline specification, extensive use of weight-saving materials such as carbonfibre, and new range-extending engine options.
More than 490 Airbus customers and operators benefit for a worldwide network of technical support and training and support centres, which includes services tailored to corporate jet users, including staff based in China.
Airbus corporate jets now also has commercial offices in both Beijing and Hong Kong.
Airbus corporate jets have won more than 170 orders to date, from companies, individuals and governments, and are flying on every continent, including Antarctica.

Interjet signs purchase agreement for 40 A320neo

Mexican airline latest in Latin America to select world’s best selling aircraft

13 November 2012Press Release

Mexican low-cost carrier and all-Airbus operator Interjet signed a purchase agreement for 40 A320neo aircraft. Interjet will announce the aircraft’s engine selection at a later date. The A320neo has over 95 percent airframe commonality making it an easy fit for Interjet’s fleet of 36 A320s. Later this month, Interjet will receive an additional A320 aircraft.

In only seven years of operations, Interjet has become a leading domestic airline in Mexico, having quickly expanded their network throughout the country and into the United States, Central America and the Caribbean. The new A320neo will support their continued network expansion and fleet renewal plans. Interjet has a backlog of 45 A320 Family aircraft, including today’s order.

“Adding the newest aircraft technology to our already young and efficient A320 fleet will allow us to operate some of the most cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly equipment available in aviation,” said Interjet Chairman Miguel Aleman Velasco.

“The A320neo will help Interjet maintain our leading position in Mexico’s airline business,” said Interjet President Miguel Alemán Magnani. “This order solidifies an already strong partnership with one of Mexico’s leading airlines. It also reinforces Latin America’s growing trend of operating some of the world’s youngest and most efficient aircraft,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “Interjet will be one of the first airlines in the region to operate the A320neo and to benefit from the 15 percent reduction in fuel burn it delivers.”

To date, more than 8,600 Airbus A320 Family aircraft have been sold and more than 5,300 delivered to more than 350 customers and operators worldwide, making it the world’s best selling commercial jetliner ever. With proven reliability and extended servicing periods, the A320 Family has the lowest operating costs of any single-aisle aircraft. The A320neo, with almost 1,500 firm orders from more than 30 customers since its launch, is the fastest selling commercial aircraft ever and is on track to enter service from 2015.

With more than 700 aircraft sold and a backlog of almost 350, over 450 Airbus aircraft operate throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. In the last 10 years, Airbus has tripled its in-service fleet, while delivering more than 60 percent of all aircraft operating in the region.

Afriqiyah Airways places firm order for four more A350 XWBs

Libyan carrier also up-sizes its original order for six A350-800s to larger A350-900s

12 November 2012Press Release

Afriqiyah Airways has increased its A350 XWB fleet with a new firm order for four A350-900s. The carrier has also converted its original order for six A350-800s into six of the larger A350-900 model. This brings Afriqiyah’s total A350 XWBs on order to ten A350-900s.

Afriqiyah’s A350 XWBs will seat 314 passengers, offering them the industry’s ultimate cabin experience. These aircraft will be operated on new routes the carrier will open to destinations in the US, the Middle East and Asia.

“Having Afriqiyah come back with this new, incremental order for the A350 XWB is great news and a strong signal that this aircraft is the industry’s new benchmark in the long-haul segment,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “We are convinced that the A350’s unbeatable economics and superior passenger comfort will be key contributors to Afriqiyah’s continued success.”

The A350 XWB (Xtra Wide-Body) is an all-new mid-size long range product line comprising three versions and seating between 270 and 350 passengers in typical three-class layouts. The new Family will bring a step change in efficiency compared with existing aircraft in this size category, using 25 per cent less fuel and providing an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions. Scheduled for entry-into-service in 2014, with Afriqiyah’s newest order included, the A350 XWB has already won 562 firm orders from 34 customers worldwide.

The month in review: October 2012

Airbus orders for its twin-aisle A330 and extra-widebody A350 XWB led the total 23 commercial bookings logged in October, while a year-record 57 deliveries were made during the month to international customers.
The new business was led by Turkish Airlines’ acquisition of 15 A330-300s, which marked the carrier’s seventh order for this twin-engine aircraft family. These additional jetliners will be operated on medium- and long-haul routes from the Turkish Airlines hub in Istanbul.

Another repeat A330 booking came from Etihad Airways, signing a firm order for two additional A330-200s as part of this United Arab Emirates national airline’s continued growth plans.

Also in October, Afriqiyah Airways acquired an additional four A350-900 versions of the A350 XWB jetliner family, and upsized its six A350-800s already on order to the same number of Airbus’ longer-fuselage A350-900 version.

Completing the month’s new business were bookings for two ACJ319 corporate jets by unnamed private customers.

In October, five A380s were delivered, marking the first time this number of 21st century flagship jetliners was provided to customers during a month. It brings the 2012 totals to 22, keeping Airbus on track for its target of delivering 30 double-deck aircraft during the year.

Other notable deliveries during the month included A320s for Jetstar Japan, AirAsia Japan and Peach Aviation – confirming the A320 Family’s success story with low-cost carriers in Japan and Asia.

By the end of October, 2012 deliveries reached an all-time year-to-date record of 462 to 76 customers, which also brought Airbus above the overall 5,300 milestone for its single-aisle aircraft and the 7,500 mark in all of its deliveries

TransAsia Airways orders six additional A321neo

Second NEO order for the Taiwanese company
8 November 2012Press Release
TransAsia Airways of Taiwan has placed a firm order with Airbus for another six A321neo aircraft. The new aircraft will be part of the airline’s fleet expansion and will allow it to develop new routes to regional destinations. The aircraft will be powered by Pratt and Whitney PW1100G engines.
The latest contract takes TransAsia Airways’ total orders for Airbus single aisle aircraft to 29, of which 11 have already been delivered. The carrier’s single aisle backlog now comprises 12 A321neo and six Sharklet-equipped A321ceo. In addition, the airline also has two widebody A330-300s on order, with first delivery scheduled later this year.
“The A321neo is a perfect fit for our strategy to grow efficiently in both domestic and regional markets and is the ideal solution to our fleet needs” said Vincent Lin, Chairman of TransAsia Airways. “With its wide cabin and outstanding fuel performance, the A321neo will bring new levels of comfort to our passengers whilst minimising our environmental footprint.”
“With the latest versions of the A321 TransAsia Airways will be operating the most modern and fuel-efficient aircraft in the 185-200 seat category,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The combination of low fuel burn and extended flying range from Taipei will position the airline well to meet its expansion plans across the fast-growing Asian market.”
The A321neo is the largest model in the recently launched A320neo Family. Incorporating new engines and large "Sharklet" wing tip devices, the A320neo Family will deliver fuel savings of 15 percent. The reduction in fuel burn is equivalent to 1.4 million litres of fuel - the consumption of 1,000 mid size cars, saving 3,600 tonnes of C02 per aircraft per year. In addition, the A320neo Family will provide a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions and reduced engine noise.
With more than 8,600 aircraft ordered and over 5,200 aircraft delivered to over 374 customers and operators worldwide, the A320 Family is the world's best-selling single-aisle aircraft family.
