Takes Orders And Commitments For 730 Airbus aircraft From 16
Customers Worth $72 Billion
At the 49th Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, Airbus says it won
about $72.2 billion worth of business for a total of 730 aircraft.
The company says the numbers represent a new record for any
commercial aircraft manufacturer at any air show ever. The
commitments comprise Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for 312
aircraft worth $28.2 billion and firm purchase orders for 418
aircraft worth around $44 billion.
The A320neo Family was clearly the star of the week for Airbus,
winning an unprecedented 667 commitments worth some $60.9 billion.
That pushes the total A320neo Family backlog since its launch in
December 2010 has now reached 1,029 units, making it by far the
best selling airliner in the history of commercial aviation. In
addition to the A320neo Family's success, the standard A320 Family
also continues to be popular, having received 34 commitments worth
$2.8 billion at the show. Commitments were also received for 11
A330s worth $2.4 billion, six A350s worth $1.6 billion, and 12
A380s worth $4.5 billion.
"Le Bourget 2011 is a strong confirmation of our product
strategy. With over 1,000 commitments just half a year after launch
our A320neo is a real bestseller," said Tom Enders, Airbus
President and CEO." "I have to admit, I largely underestimated the
market demand for neo before this show."
