Airbus Updates No.1014

Airbus win Chinese Orders for 100 A320 Aircraft......................

PARIS--European aircraft company Airbus said Friday it has booked firm orders valued at $9.67 billion on the basis of list prices for 100 of its medium-haul, single aisle A320 aircraft from two Chinese airlines: Air China and its subsidiary Shenzhen Airlines. 

A spokesman for the Toulouse, France-based company said Air China is taking 60 of the planes and Shenzhen the remaining 40. The two airlines are buying 40 of the current engine version of the A320, a workhorse of low-cost airlines around the world, as well as 60 of a future, more fuel-efficient version called the A320neo.

Air China is taking 27 current A320 aircraft, and 33 A320neos, while Shenzhen has signed for 13 A320s with the current engine option and 27 A320neos.

Deliveries will start in 2014, an Airbus official said.
