Airbus Updates No.1620


A350 XWB
Orders as of 30 April 201717,105


Airbus booked orders for 25 jetliners from its A320, A330 and A350 XWB families during April, while the month’s 46 deliveries involved aircraft in the same three product lines.
Leading the new business were bookings for a total of 14 A320-series single-aisle aircraft, composed of three A320ceo and two A320neo versions for China Aircraft Leasing Group Holdings Limited, four A319ceo aircraft for an undisclosed customer, three A320ceo jetliners for AirAsia, and two A321neo versions for Nile Air.
Order totals for the twin-aisle A350 XWB increased with an undisclosed customer’s acquisition of 10 A350-900s. An A330-200 was ordered by Iberia to further increase this carrier’s inventory of Airbus-built widebody jetliners.
Taking conversions and cancellations into account, the April transactions brought Airbus’ net orders for the first four months of 2017 to 23 aircraft.
Deliveries in April involved 36 A320 Family aircraft (including 10 A320neo/A321neo versions), six A330s in the -200 and -300 configurations, and four A350-900s. This raised total 2017 deliveries to 182 jetliners as of 30 April, and included the first-ever A321neo – which was provided to Virgin America. Also during the month, Asiana Airlines took delivery of its initial A350-900, becoming the 12th airline to introduce the new, highly efficient aircraft into its fleet.
Based on the latest orders and deliveries activity, Airbus’ overall backlog of jetliners to be delivered stood at 6,715 at month’s end, representing approximately 8 years of production. The grand total of orders booked by Airbus since its creation reached 17,105, while cumulative deliveries stood at 10,390 aircraft through 30 April.
