Airbus Updates No.1785

Vietnam's Bamboo Airways inks MOU for 24 A321neo

Vietnamese conglomerate FLC Group says it has chosen Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) and the A320neo Family for its nascent unit Bamboo Airways' fleeting requirements.

A company statement issued on March 6 said it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for twenty-four A321neo with the Europeans with deliveries to run through to 2025. Thereafter, it will consider ordering a further twenty-four Long Range variants - A321neo(LR)s - to bolster its fleet in the longrun. Although no firm delivery dates have yet been set, Airbus has pledged to prioritize Bamboo Airways orders for handover between 2022 and 2025. 

"After studying and scrutinizing the options, FLC Group and Bamboo Airways have decided to order 24 aircraft from Airbus to meet early Bamboo Airways demand through until 2025. After commissioning and testing in terms of performance, we will also consider further expansion options," Trinh Van Quyet, chairman of FLC, said.

Bamboo Airways is still awaiting a business licence from the Vietnamese Ministry of Transport. To mitigate Hanoi's concerns about infrastructural saturation, it has proposed operating to and from Vietnam's secondary airfields largely avoiding Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

Bamboo Airways aims to offer direct international flights to Vietnamese leisure destinations where parent firm FLC has a strong presence. These include Qui Nhon, Quang Ninh, HaiphongThanh HoaPhu Quoc, and Nha Trang Cam Ranh. In addition, it will also offer domestic flights between city-pairs that include Thanh Hoa - Qui Nhon, Thanh Hoa - Phu Quoc, Thanh Hoa - Nha Trang, Hai Phong - Qui Nhon.

Turkish Airlines orders 25 Airbus A350 and adds 1 A330F

Turkish Airlines (TK, Istanbul Atatürk) has outlined the delivery timetable for its purchase of both Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) and Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) widebody aircraft.

In a filing to the Istanbul stock exchange, the carrier reaffirmed a Memorandum of Understanding, signed with Airbus in January of this year, for twenty-five firm with five optioned A350-900s.

However, it has rejigged its Boeing order from the previously announced twenty firm and twenty optioned B787-9s to now include twenty-five firm and five optioned aircraft of the type.

Of the total 60 widebody aircraft to be acquired, six will be delivered in 2019, 14 in 2020, 10 in 2021, 12 in 2012, 11 in 2023, and seven in the year 2024. 

In addition, Turkish Airlines has also confirmed it has acquired one A330-200(F) from DVB Bank SE to cover its freight capacity needs for 2018 and beyond. The aircraft is understood to be JY-AIH (msn 1164) that was originally destined for Royal Jordanian (RJ, Amman Queen Alia) but not taken up.

American Airlines eyes used A319s as MD-80 replacement

American Airlines (AA, Dallas/Fort Worth) is looking at options for adding second-hand A319-100s to its fleet to bridge the capacity gap as the carrier prepares for the retirement of its McDonnell DouglasMD-80s in 2019, View from the Wing has reported citing an employee Q&A session at the carrier. 

"Newer model used aircraft are absolutely something we have an eye out for. As we take a look at where A319s are available we are going to be out there after them, because we want them. They are a little bit larger than we need in terms of total seating capacity but when you take a look at the operating economics when you put it into our fleet, it works really well," President Robert Isom has said. 

He added that while in general the carrier is focused on adding brand new aircraft to its fleet, Airbusproduction is currently geared towards larger variants A320 and A321, as they are in bigger demand globally. This makes second-hand units a better solution for American. 

According to the ch-aviation fleets module, the carrier currently operates 125 A319-100s, the largest fleet of the type in the world. All the aircraft are configured for 124 seats. AA also operates forty-eight A320s and 219 A321s, and has a further 100 A321neos on order from Airbus

AA has previously announced it wants to retire all remaining forty-five MD-80s, including ten MD-82s and thirty-five MD-83s, by the end of 2019. The aircraft can carry up to 140 passengers in the carrier's configuration.
