A350 XWB
Orders as of 30 November 201717,415


During November, the order book for Airbus’ best-selling A320 Family increased by 45 jetliners, while 74 aircraft were delivered to international customers from all of the company’s current-production single-aisle and widebody product lines.
The new business in November involved 30 single-aisle A320neo and 15 A321neo aircraft for CDB Aviation Lease Finance (CDB Aviation), adding to this lessor’s previous bookings of 45 A320 Family’s NEO versions.
Taking the month’s order from CDB Aviation into account, Airbus’ overall net orders for the first 11 months of 2017 totalled 333 jetliners.
November’s deliveries were for 37 customers, composed of 54 single-aisle A320 Family aircraft (including 22 A320neo/A321neo versions), along with 20 widebody jetliners: five A330-300s, 11 A350-900s and four A380s. Deliveries underscored Airbus’ continued production ramp-up for the A350 XWB, which is to reach a monthly rate of 10 in 2018, with deliveries in November including the initial A350-900 for Malaysia Airlines (operated on lease from Air Lease Corporation).
As of 30 November, Airbus’ overall backlog of jetliners remaining to be delivered stood at 6,616 aircraft – representing the equivalent of approximately nine years of production at current rates.

Qatar Airways Signs Deal for 50 Airbus A321neo ACF

Qatar Airways Signs Deal for 50 Airbus A321neo ACF
December 07
MIAMI – The state visit of French President, Emmanuel Macron, on Qatari land, was the perfect scenario to score a new deal for 50 Airbus A321ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex configuration), to be acquired by the country’s flag carrier, Qatar Airways.
The Gulf carrier will make an investment of $6.4 billion with an option to buy 36 more. This updated order replaces the original one placed in 2011.
According to Qatar Airways Group CEO, Akbar Al Baker, the order was placed “to answer our need for growth and additional capacity.”
Al Baker said that the A321neoACF “is a world-class choice for our passengers and for our business.”
This order comes in following last May’s major disagreement between Airbus and Qatar Airways concerning the delivery of the A320neo.
During a press conference, at the time, Al Baker directly blamed Airbus for slowing Qatar’s growth because of the engine troubles that delayed the aircraft’s delivery.
“We have five more routes that we would like to announce, but we can’t, because of delivery delays from Airbus,” he stated.
Airways asked Al Baker about the issue during his announcement in May, and he replied, “They’re not there yet. We walked away from its first A320neo delivery, two days ago,” because of continued issues with its engines from Pratt & Whitney.
Today, however, both France and Qatar signed various contracts to cover different interests of both nations.
This state visit comes in after Qatar was hit by numerous sanctions imposed by neighboring countries.
The French President’s initial goal was to reach a diplomatic release to the tense geopolitical situation. However, the meeting finalized with an agreement that involved 50 Airbus aircraft.
“These contracts underline the closeness of our commercial ties,” said Macron as he remarked the contracts were valued at $14.1 billion.
Among the deals reached: France’s Dassault Aviation sold 12 French-built Rafale fighter jets, and Airbus sold 50 A321 with options for 36 more.
Also, the French National Railway Company, along with Paris Metro Company, RATP, won a contract to run the Doha metro. French state-owned armaments company, Nexter, sold 490 armored vehicles as well.
“We are pleased that a signature airline like Qatar Airways has chosen the A321neo ACF,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, and President Commercial Aircraft.
“This is an endorsement for the largest member of our single-aisle family. It confirms the aircraft’s strong position as the ideal Middle of the Market airplane for the Middle East.”

DHL Takes Delivery of the First Airbus A330-300P2F

DHL Takes Delivery of the First Airbus A330-300P2F
December 02
MIAMI – DHL Express is the first operator to take delivery of the A330-300 Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) converted aircraft from Elbe Flugzeugwerke (EFW) — the joint venture between ST Aerospace and Airbus.

Geoff Kehr, SVP, Global Air Fleet Management, DHL Express said the expectations over the new aircraft are to “strengthen our Asia Pacific air network, bringing added capacity and increased efficiency” since it is a market with “dynamic express volume growth.”

“DHL Express is very excited to be bringing the first A330-300 P2F into commercial operation within our international air network,” Kehr said.
This delivery comes after October’s test flights and November’s awarding of the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
“We congratulate DHL on the delivery of its first A330-300P2F. We are confident that this new-generation and efficient mid-sized freighter will bring significant benefits to DHL’s international express operations,” said Christopher Buckley, Airbus EVP Sales.
The A330P2F conversion program was launched in 2012 and is a collaboration between ST Aerospace, Airbus, and their joint venture EFW. It has two variants – the A330-200P2F and the larger A330-300P2F.
The aircraft can carry up to 62 metric tonnes over 3,650 nautical miles while offering 20% more cargo volume and lower cost-per-tonne.
DHL Express has firm orders for eight A330-300P2F with additional options to receive another 10.
