Airbus Updates No.1482

Air India future A320neo operator

Airbus is delighted to further its long relationship with Air India and to welcome them as a future A320neo operator from 2017.
Air India and Alafco have signed a lease agreement for operating lease of 14 A320neo aircraft at the Hyderabad airshow in India. With this agreement Air India will benefit from A320neo’s 15 per cent fuel burn reduction, reduced noise and environmental footprint, while offering its passengers the best in class comfort.
Today Air India already operates 66 A320 family aircraft including 22 A319, 24 A320 and 20 A321. Airbus and Air India have enjoyed a very long term partnership. Air India was the first airline in India to operate A320s and it was 27 years ago.

Airbus Updates No.1475

Singapore Airlines becomes new operator of the A350 XWB

Singapore Airlines has taken delivery of its first A350 XWB in Toulouse, France, becoming the fifth operator of the all-new widebody airliner. With its unrivalled passenger flying experience and operational efficiency, the A350 XWB will form the backbone of Singapore Airlines’ future mid-size widebody fleet.
Singapore Airlines’ aircraft is configured in a premium three class layout with 253 seats, comprising 42 Business Class, 24 Premium Economy and 187 Economy. After an initial period flying on regional services to Kuala Lumpur and Jakarta the aircraft will be deployed on long haul flights from May, starting with Amsterdam and then Dusseldorf.
Altogether the airline has ordered 67 A350-900s which will be operated on long range flights, as well as on selected regional services. Seven of the aircraft will be delivered with an ultra-long range capability for flights of up to 19 hours, allowing the carrier to resume non-stop flights to the US. The A350 XWB will join an existing Airbus fleet at Singapore Airlines that currently comprises 19 double decker A380s and 29 A330-300s, making the carrier an operator of the complete Airbus Widebody Family.
The A350 XWB is the world’s latest generation airliner and the newest member of Airbus’ modern, comfortable & efficient widebody product family. It features the latest aerodynamic design, carbon fiber fuselage and wings, plus new fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines. Together, these latest technologies translate into unrivalled levels of operational efficiency, with a 25 per cent reduction in fuel burn and emissions, and significantly lower maintenance costs.

To date, Airbus has recorded a total of 783 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 42 customers worldwide, already making it one of the most successful widebody aircraft ever.
