Airbus’ Upgraded A330 Wins Additional Orders
Airbus said it won additional commitments from several lessors for its revised A330 wide-body jet on Tuesday, the second day of the Farnborough International Airshow.
Dublin-based Avolon, an aircraft lessor, signed a memorandum of understanding for 15 of the just introduced A330neo planes. Airbus said Avolon will also be a launch customer for the A330neo.
In addition, CIT Aerospace, an aircraft financing and leasing company, ordered 15 upgraded A330 jets along with five narrow-body A321s. The total deal at list priced is valued at $4.7 billion.
On Monday, Airbus introduced the A330neo with an order for 25 from Air Lease Corporation.
In addition to orders for the new A330neo, Airbus received multiple orders for the A320 family of planes. SMBC Aviation Capital ordered 110 A320neo and five A320ceo jets and Singapore-based BOC Aviation ordered seven A320neo family planes and 36 A320ceo aircraft.
