European Plane Maker Received Orders And Commitments For 255
Signalling a clear upturn in the aviation industry, Airbus
announced commitments at the 2010 Farnborough Air Show for 255
aircraft, valued at around $28 billion. The commitments so far
include firm orders for 133 aircraft worth more than $13 billion,
plus memorandum of understanding (MoU) agreements for a further 122
aircraft totalling around $15 billion.
The firm orders at the show came from GECAS for 60 A320s worth
around $4.9 billion; from Air Lease Corporation for 51 A320 Family
aircraft worth $4.4 billion; from Aeroflot for 11 A330-300s worth
$2.3 billion; from Garuda Indonesia for six A330-200s worth $1.2
billion; and from Germania for five A319s worth $372 million.
The MoU commitments included: 40 A320s plus 10 A321s together
worth $4.2 billion from LAN; 10 A330-200s worth $1.9 billion plus
15 A350 XWBs worth $3.8 billion from Hong Kong Airlines; 40 A320s
worth $3.3 billion from Virgin America; and seven A330-300s worth
$1.5 billion from Thai Airways International.
John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers commented:
"Before the Farnborough Air Show we already had 131 orders, and we
predicted that by the end of the week we'd double that. Indeed, the
commitments which we have already received here, bring our total
firm orders this year already to over 260 aircraft." He adds: "This
clearly proves that the market is back, and that our new end of
year target for over 400 orders is within reach."
