Airbus Delivers 100th Airbus Aircraft To British Airways

One of Europe's largest Airbus Single Aisle fleets

The recent delivery of an A320 aircraft to British Airways means the airline has acquired 100 or more aircraft from every member of Airbus' single aisle aircraft family. The airline has already taken delivery of two A318s, 33 A319s, 48 A320s and 16 A321s. The 100th aircraft (an A320 powered by IAE engines) is also the 205th Airbus single aisle delivered to International Airlines Group, which was formed in January 2011 following the merger of British Airways and Iberia.

"This milestone underlines British Airways' commitment to continue to invest in new aircraft for the benefit of our customers," said Keith Williams, British Airways CEO. "The average age of our shorthaul Airbus fleet is just over seven years old, making it one of the youngest Airbus fleets of the European network carriers."

British Airways became an Airbus operator in 1988, when it introduced the A320 in its fleet. It added the A319 in 1999, the A321 in 2004 and the A318 in 2009. "We are very proud that a world class airline like British Airways operates every member of our single aisle family aircraft, and even prouder to deliver to BA their 100th Airbus A320 family aircraft. We look forward to broadening and deepening our partnership with BA," said Tom Enders, Airbus President and CEO.
