THE MONTH IN REVIEW: AUGUST 2017

Airbus booked 12 orders in August for the best-selling A320 Family of single-aisle jetliners, and delivered 46 aircraft during the month from across its in-production single-aisle and widebody product lines.

The orders were led by 10 A321ceo versions for Wizz Air, which are to join the Hungarian-based carrier’s all-Airbus fleet. The other bookings involved an A320neo for Frontier Airlines of the United States (which also flies Airbus aircraft exclusively), along with an ACJ319neo Airbus Corporate Jetliner for a private customer.

Taking these latest transactions into account, along with conversions and cancellations during the year, Airbus’ overall net orders for the first eight months of 2017 totalled 215 jetliners.

The August deliveries – for 33 customers – were composed of 35 A320 Family jetliners, three A330-300s, seven A350-900s (confirming Airbus’ ramp-up to the targeted rate of 10 A350 XWB deliveries per month by the end of 2018), and one A380. This brought overall Airbus deliveries since the company’s creation to above the 10,600 mark: reaching a total of 10,607.

Included in the month’s delivery activity was the first A350 XWB for Hong Kong Airlines – an A350-900 leased from AerCap – becoming the 15th carrier to receive the world’s newest and most efficient twin-aisle airliner. Also during August, two more operators joined the line-up of airlines with A320ceo aircraft: flyadeal, the newly-established low-fare carrier in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; and China Express Airlines.

With the latest order and delivery activity, Airbus’ overall backlog of jetliners remaining to be delivered stood at 6,690 as of August 31, representing approximately nine years of production at current rates.
