Airbus Updates No.1570

South African Airways takes delivery of its first A330-300 aircraft

South African Airways (SAA), has taken delivery of its first of five new leased A330-300 widebody jetliners, becoming Airbus’s first Southern African operator of the aircraft type.

SAA’s A330-300 are configured in a comfortable two-class cabin layout with 46 seats in Business Class and 203 in Economy class seats.  The aircraft will introduce new levels of onboard comfort, including connectivity for SAA’s passengers and enhanced operating efficiencies for the airline.
SAA has selected the latest 242-tonne Maximum Take-Off Weight variant of the A330-300, which incorporates a new aerodynamic packages enabling the aircraft to cover distances of up to 6,350 nautical miles (11,750km) in flights up to 15 hours in duration.  This payload/range capability allows the aircraft to be deployed across SAA’s long-haul, intra-Africa and peak domestic routes.
The A330-300s share the same cockpit configuration, operating philosophy and procedures with SAA’s existing fleet of Airbus widebody jetliners.  This high degree of commonality across the fleet is fundamental to achieving low operating, maintenance and training costs.
The A330 Family, which spans 250 to 300 seats, has attracted over 1,630 orders, with over 1,300 aircraft delivered to more than 100 operators worldwide, including SAA.  The A330 is one of the world’s most efficient aircraft with best-in-class operating economics and average on-time dispatch reliability above 99 percent.

Airbus Updates No.1569

… / Corporate information / Orders & Deliveries


A350 XWB
Orders as of 30 November 201616,761


Airbus booked orders for 15 of its single-aisle and widebody jetliners during November while making 61 deliveries involving all members of its current-production product line: the A320 Family, A330, A350 XWB and A380.
The new business for Airbus’ single-aisle A320 Family was composed of three A320ceo and five A321ceo (Current Engine Option) aircraft for an unidentified customer; five A320ceo versions for Air Arabia – the Sharjah, United Arab Emirates-based low-cost carrier that is an all-A320 operator; and one ACJ320neo (New Engine Option) corporate jet for a private customer.
November’s widebody order was from Hawaiian Airlines, which acquired another A330-200 for this U.S. operator’s already-large A330 fleet.
Taking the month’s bookings into account, Airbus’ annual net orders for 2016 reached 410 at the end-November. 
Deliveries during the month were led by the 48 A320 Family airliners provided to customers and operators worldwide. Of this total, 11 were A320neo versions, including the first NEO for Kazakhstan flag carrier Air Astana – leased from Air Lease Corporation.
Widebody deliveries in November were composed of seven A330s, two A380s (provided to Emirates) and four A350 XWBs (one each received by Qatar Airways, LATAM, Cathay Pacific Airways and China Airlines).  
With the month’s A350 XWB handover activity, the total year-to-date deliveries for these new jetliners in 2016 reached 34 aircraft as of 30 November, which were provided to nine operators.
Based on the month’s order and delivery activity, Airbus’ overall backlog at the end of November stood at 6,664 aircraft, composed of 5,460 A320 Family jetliners, 324 A330s, 761 A350 XWBs and 119 A380s.

Airbus Updates No.1568

Dear all

Just to say hopefully business is slowly being restored on my blog ... I stopped for a while because of the death of a dear friend who was my spotting buddy and lifelong aviation fan and who has travelled with me throughout the world

I will miss you mate and I your honour I will continue to see these lumps of tin you and I so loved

RIP Stevo
