Airbus Grows A320neo Order Book At Farnborough

Largest Commitment Is For 80 Airplanes From An 'Undisclosed Lessor'

Airbus kicked off the Farnborough International Airshow with a bevy of orders for its A320neo airplane, including a Memorandum of Understanding for 80 airplanes from an "undisclosed lessor".More details about that order, including engine selections, will be announced at a later date.

Other A320 orders include an agreement with Macquarie AirFinance Group Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Macquarie Group Limited, listed in Australia, for 20 A320neo aircraft to add to its existing portfolio of 119 Airbus aircraft. This first-time order for the A320neo, makes Macquarie AirFinance Group the newest customer for the type and re-enforces the appeal of the world’s bestselling single aisle Family.

Goshawk Aviation Limited, the 50/50 joint venture between Hong Kong-based conglomerate NWS Holdings Limited and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises Limited, has also placed a firm order for 20 A320neo. Goshawk has more than 120 Airbus aircraft in its portfolio.

Golden Falcon Aviation, the exclusive aircraft provider of Wataniya Airways, has confirmed an order for 25 Airbus A320neo family aircraft.The order follows an earlier MoU announced at last year’s Dubai Airshow.

The firm order was signed during the Farnborough International Airshow by Rakan Al-Tuwaijri, Chief Executive Officer of Golden Falcon Aviation, and Eric Schulz, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer.

Wataniya Airways resumed operations in July 2017 and currently operates a fleet of four A320 family aircraft serving destinations in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Asia from its home base in Kuwait. The A320neo family aircraft will support the airline’s vision to become the fastest growing and leading airline in the country.

VISTARA, the New Delhi-based carrier, has signed a letter of Intent (LoI) for 13 A320neo aircraft to add to its existing portfolio of 21 Airbus airplanes. The full-service airline has also committed to an additional 37 A320neo Family aircraft from lessors. The combined agreements would add 50 A320neo Family to Vistara’s fleet. The engine selection for VISTARA's latest firm order is Leap CFM.

For VISTARA, the A320neo will be the first aircraft to fly regional international routes.
