    Mi auto-quoto per aggiungere la notizia che Comac, che per il C919 aveva già selezionato il Leap-X, adesso sembra anche avere interesse per il PW1000:

    sarebbe ora che arrivasse una buona concorrenza a GE.. dopo il monopolio di PW con il JT8 negli anni sessanta-settanta, GE ha quasi monopolizzato il mercato; speriamo che la "execution" non somigli a quella del PW600..

    Per non aprire un nuovo thread lo posto qua: adesso anche Lufthansa ha scelto il PW1100G per i suoi 320neo. Si tratta di 60 reattori per 30 aerei.
    Dopo ILFC, Indigo adesso LH. Per il momento nessuno ha selezionato il Leap-X

    Speriamo effettivamente che l'esecuzione sarà meglio che per il PW6000...

    Predefinito Introduzione A320neo anticipata ad ottobre 2015

    Qualche aggiornamento di oggi riguardo al A320neo

    - l'entrata in servizio è ora prevista per il mese di ottobre 2015 invece del II trim 2016
    - il primo motore disponibile sarà il PW1100G, il Leap-X seguirà 9 mesi dopo
    - prima versione disponibile sarà l'A320neo, seguito 6 mesi dopo dall'A319neo; l'A321neo seguirà 6 mesi dopo ancora (è stato invertito l'ordine di A319neo e A321neo rispetto ai primi piani)
    - verranno effettuati i test con 4 A320neo (2 PW1100G e 2 Leap-X), 2 A319neo e 2 A321neo
    - non si conosce ancora il primo operatore
    - entro le Bourget, John Leahy prevede di averne venduto 500, ci sarebbe anche un secondo cliente sudamericano oltre a TAM

    Fonti: http://www.flightglobal.com/articles...ad-engine.html e http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/blogs...medium=twitter

    Nella stessa conferenza stampa JL avrebbe fatto capire che non prevede la sostituzione dell'A320 prima degli anni 30 e che in totale entro tale epoca Airbus avrà venduto 12000 A320

    Il geared turbofan rappresenta un cambiamento generazionale importante - dubbi principali: affidabilità e costi di manutenzione - mentre il Leap-X è praticamente solo un'evoluzione dei CFM attualmente in uso: con la pressione data dal costo del petrolio che continua a salire è naturale che i vettori siano più attratti da soluzioni nuove che promettono risparmi notevoli sui consumi.

    Predefinito GoAir may place order at Paris Air Show

    Rumour su possibile nuovo ordine per A320neo (lo posto qui per non aprire un nuovo thread):

    GoAir may place order at Paris Air Show
    The airline has been unable to fly overseas as it doesn’t fulfil the criterion of having a fleet of at least 20 planes
    Tarun Shukla, tarun.s@livemint.com
    New Delhi

    Wadia group-owned low-cost airline GoAir (India) Pvt. Ltd is in talks with European aircraft maker Airbus SAS to place a fresh order for Airbus A320 aircraft at the Paris Air Show that starts on 20 June.

    If the order materializes, it would be the second such by an Indian carrier this year after InterGlobe Aviation Pvt. Ltd-run IndiGo ordered a record 180 aircraft worth $15 billion (Rs.67,800 crore) in January to meet its expansion plans till 2025.

    GoAir, currently the smallest passenger airline in the country, may also become the second Indian carrier to order the fuel-efficient A320neo, which will make its debut this decade.

    The six-year-old discount carrier is planning to place an order for A320neo aircraft to drive expansion plans and the details of the order are currently being worked out, said a person familiar with the matter who declined to be identified.

    GoAir could place an order for anywhere up to 50-70 aircraft, which may include several options, this official said. Airlines usually place an order with options, which they can later firm up. It’s last order was in 2006 for 10 Airbus A320 aircraft.

    GoAir said it will make an announcement shortly, without specifying further details.

    “We will have a press briefing in first or second week of June,” said GoAir chief executive officer Kaushik Khona.

    A second person familiar with the matter said the airline was studying its “requirements” and could look at an announcement at the Paris Airshow. He, too, declined to be named.

    The Mumbai-based carrier runs a fleet of 10 A320 aircraft currently, with 6.4% of the domestic market share. Its rival IndiGo, which started a year before GoAir, now controls a 19.7% market share with a fleet of 39 aircraft, while SpiceJet has 29 aircraft controlling a 13.4% market share.

    All the domestic carriers in the Indian market have been able to go international barring GoAir, which despite meeting the five-year domestic flying experience falls short of the criterion of having a fleet of at least 20 aircraft.

    The airline has been in a restructuring mode this year. As a part of that restructuring, Khona is returning to the parent Wadia group where he came from, he said.

    Giorgio De Roni, a former chief revenue officer at Italian low-cost carrier Air One SpA, which runs a fleet of fiveA320 aircraft, is transitioning into the new role of chief executive. GoAir has also redesigned its website and launched its presence on social media sites Twitter and Facebook recently.

    Consulting firm Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation in its 2011 outlook expects GoAir to hit the bourses with an initial public offering in 2011-12 to raise funds and buy aircraft.

    Besides GoAir, IndiGo’s 180 aircraft Airbus order could also be firmed up at the Paris Air Show, sales chief John Leahy said on last week. “I think we will have the IndiGo order finalized and announced by the Paris Air Show,” he said.

    In the midst of the global economic crisis in 2009, the only Indian carrier to announce an order at that year’s Paris Air Show at Le Bourget Airport was Chennai-based Paramount Airways Pvt. Ltd.

    The carrier, which closed operations in 2010, had signed an agreement buy 10 Airbus A321 passenger jets and an option to buy 10 more. The order does not figure in the official Airbus aircraft order book of 2011.

    SAS leans towards A320neo but would prefer all-new narrowbody

    By Kerry Reals on June 2, 2011 3:36 PM

    Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting SAS Group environmental director Lars Andersen Resare for coffee in Mayfair.

    We talked about lots of things, including SAS' aim to enter into some kind of agreement with a biofuel supplier ("We're looking at a couple of suppliers," said Resare, declining to elaborate).

    I asked him why SAS was still flying around in gas-guzzling old MD-80s if it was so concerned about the environment, and he talked about the carrier's fleet renewal plan.

    Here's what he had to say about the A320neo versus whatever Boeing has up its sleeve in terms of a narrowbody replacement. The story is on our premium channels but if you read this blog you get it pasted below for free!

    SAS leans towards A320neo but keeps close eye on Boeing
    Kerry Reals, London (02Jun11, 14:23 GMT, 198 words)

    SAS Group would prefer to see an all-new narrowbody from Boeing, but time constraints are leading the carrier to lean towards the re-engined Airbus A320neo as a more likely option for its fleet renewal programme.

    Speaking to ATI during an interview in London on 1 June, SAS environmental director Lars Andersen Resare said the carrier is following Boeing's narrowbody replacement plans "very closely" and "would prefer to see an all-new aircraft from an environmental perspective".

    However, he added that with Boeing yet to unveil its plans it is "getting late for us", therefore, "being realistic, the neo is taking us further".

    SAS in April 2011 outlined plans to lease up to 17 Boeing 737-700/800 aircraft and take additional A320s to replace its fleet of Boeing MD-80s. There has been no final decision on the number of A320s to be acquired.

    Resare described this move as a short- to medium-term solution, adding that for the longer term SAS is looking at the A320neo and has not ruled out the Bombardier CSeries.

    "The leases are not that long and we need something better and newer," he said, adding that a decision will be made "during this year".

    Hanno anche un po' di 321 da molti anni e più di recente hanno acquistato dei 319, comunque i numeri credo siano in favore di B.

    La flotta narrow body di SAS vede 77 B737 contro 12 A32S. Nello specifico:

    28 B736
    19 B73G
    20 B738
    3 B734
    7 B735
    4 A319
    8 A321

    Da sottolineare che molti B737 sono provenienza ex Braathens e non ordine diretto.

    Inoltre la flotta MDD resiste con 26 macchine, divise in 9 M81, 14 M82 e 3 M87.

    Nel complesso si tratta di 115 macchine, anche se un ordine per un nuovo aereo, indipendentemente che sia A320NEO o nuovo NB Boeing, date le dimensioni delle macchine e del mercato Scandinavo, a mio avviso sarà sui 70/80 esemplari e poi credo faranno un sostanzioso ordine per un aereo della classe regional da 100 posti.

    CFM prepares to unveil Leap-X customers
    By David Kaminski-Morrow

    CFM International is preparing to detail orders for its Leap-X turbofan, which has yet to receive its first customer for the Airbus A320neo platform.
    Virgin America and US lessor International Lease Finance (ILFC) have combined firm orders for 70 A320neo-family aircraft but an engine selection for the jets has yet to be made.
    ILFC, which has 100 A320neo-family jets on order, has already chosen the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G for 60 of them but has been holding discussions with CFM to put the Leap-X engine on the other 40.
    "We will be announcing several Leap orders in the next few weeks - possibly leading up to, and certainly during, the Paris air show," said CFM, but declined to identify customers or confirm the airframe involved. A variant of its Leap-X engine will also power the Chinese-built Comac C919.
    The ILFC order, formally listed on 27 April, covers 75 A320neo and 25 A321neo aircraft. Virgin America ordered 60 A320s in December last year, of which 30 will be A320neos.
    Three other customers - India's IndiGo, Lufthansa and TAM - have yet to firm their orders for the re-engined aircraft.
    But IndiGo has committed to fitting the PW1100G on all 150 A320neos in its planned order while Lufthansa has opted for the engine for its 25 A320neos and five A321neos.
    This means Pratt & Whitney has secured agreements to power 240 of the 332 A320neo aircraft which customers have so far agreed - tentatively and firmly - to acquire.
    Brazilian carrier TAM has neither firmed its selection of 22 A320neos nor indicated a powerplant choice.

    Predefinito Airbus Expects to Get Boeing Customer to Switch to A320neo

    Con il rischio di entrare nel territorio della speculazione riporto questo articolo da Bloomberg. Parigi sarà molto interessante quest'anno...

    Airbus Expects to Get Boeing Customer to Switch to A320neo

    By Andrea Rothman and Liza Tan - Jun 7, 2011 12:03 AM GMT+0200

    Airbus SAS may announce its first order for the A320neo this month from an airline that operates Boeing Co. (BA) 737s, signaling the European company is making inroads into rival territory with its upgraded single-aisle jet.
    All orders or commitments for the jet, to enter service from late 2015, have so far been from leasing firms, which buy a broad mix of planes, or airlines that buy from Airbus. Winning an operator of Boeing’s “Next Generation” 737s would illustrate Airbus’s ability to pull business from customers not firmly loyal to the Toulouse, France-based company.
    “We’re talking to a few customers who now fly the 737NG about the Neo and I’d be very surprised if we don’t have at least one announcement from an airline currently operating the Boeing NG,” Christopher Buckley, Airbus’s executive vice president for Europe, Asia and Pacific, said in an interview in Singapore today.
    Since it began offering airlines the A320 series planes equipped with new engines, Airbus has already won 332 orders and commitments and expects to complete the Paris Air show later this month with more than 500 orders for the series, Buckley said at the annual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association.
    Boeing declined to comment today. The Chicago-based company has said it prefers to develop an all-new single-aisle model that would be available by 2020, though it may offer a new engine for the 737 in the middle of the decade as an interim step if the new plane would take longer than expected.
    ‘Cost of Switching’
    “There’s a very high cost of switching” a fleet from one manufacturer’s jets to another, Boeing Commercial Airplanes President Jim Albaugh said in a May 24 presentation in Seattle. “I really don’t think that we’re going to see too many customers really think about switching to a different type of airplane any time soon.”
    The Boeing 737 NG, which stands for Next Generation, entered service in 2000, replacing older variants known as 737 Classics. The A320 and the 737 are the most commonly used aircraft by airlines, and they generate the bulk of orders for their manufacturers.
    Airbus is also optimistic about additional orders for the double-decker A380, the world’s largest passenger jet, the executive said. The planemaker won SkyMark of Japan, which ordered four, and South Korea’s Asiana Airlines (020560), which ordered six, as new customers for the A380 this year. Both carriers will use the planes to challenge leaders in their home markets.
    ‘Good Start’
    “After that good start, we’re now optimistic we will be able to add a new customer, our third for the year, hopefully in the next couple of months,” Buckley said. “We think this will be a good year for the A380, and I think the feedback both from our current customers and from the passengers as well remains fantastic.”
    Over the longer term, Airbus expects to win customers for the superjumbo in the U.S. market, he said. So far sales have been largely in Asia and Europe.
    “I don’t think it will happen tomorrow, but we’ve seen some interest,” Buckley said.

    Primo ordine per Leap-X: Virgin America diventa launch customer:

    VIRGIN AMERICA LEAPS INTO THE FUTURE AS LAUNCH CUSTOMER FOR NEW CFM ENGINE

    Growing Airline First to Order New Fuel and Cost Efficient Advanced LEAP™ Engine – Total CFM Order Valued at $1.4 Billion
    Virgin America Launches Fare Sale Today, with CFM/GE Purchasing Carbon Offsets for the First 5,000 Flights* Booked

    San Francisco – June 15, 2011 – Virgin America today announces that it has selected CFM International’s advanced LEAP™ engine to power 30 new Airbus A320neo aircraft scheduled to begin delivery in 2016. In addition, the airline has selected the CFM56-5B engine to power 30 of its current technology A320s on order. The engine orders have a combined value of $1.4 billion at list price. In January, the airline announced it would nearly triple its fleet size with an order for 60 new Airbus A320 Family aircraft – including the first commercial order for the new eco-efficient Airbus A320neo. Together, the A320neo and the LEAP™ engine promise to deliver one of the world’s most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft, with more than 15 percent improved fuel efficiency, corresponding improvements in carbon efficiency and double digit reductions in NOx emissions. Virgin America estimates this will deliver a fuel cost savings to the carrier of $1.9 million per aircraft per year. To celebrate the new LEAP™ technology and its own growth, the carrier today launches a “Flyers, Start Your Engines” fare sale. To further mark the milestone order, CFM International and parent companies GE and Snecma (Safran Group) will purchase carbon offsets for the first 5,000* flights booked today at www.virginamerica.com.

    “Choosing LEAP™ gives us the best of all worlds – the most advanced technology, significant fuel savings, consistency with our current fleet and the reliability of CFM,” said Virgin America President and CEO David Cush. “Our airline is known for taking a different approach to amenities, design and service in order to make travel better. But we’re just as committed to finding new ways to make travel more sustainable, even as we grow. The A320neo and the LEAP™ engine together will create one of the world’s most fuel-efficient commercial aircraft. Our investment today will ultimately help us take a major leap forward in terms of efficiency.”

    Virgin America’s current A320 Family fleet is powered by the CFM56 engine and is up to 25 percent more fuel efficient than other domestic fleets and one of the most carbon-efficient in the U.S. on an RPM basis. The LEAP™ engine and the A320neo with the new wing tip “Sharklets” will yield even greater efficiencies. Compared to aircraft powered by today’s best engines, the A320neo with the LEAP™ engine will provide more than 15 percent improved fuel efficiency and equivalent reductions in CO2 emissions, double digit reductions in NOx emissions, reduced engine noise and lower operating costs. Based on Virgin America’s use and operation of the aircraft, it is estimated that the LEAP™ advances will offer Virgin America an annual fuel savings of $1.9 million per aircraft at current fuel prices. With the LEAP™ engine, the A320neo aircraft will also offer increased performance range and emit 3,600 fewer tons of CO2 per aircraft on an annual basis.


    Virgin America’s new Airbus A320neo

    “Flyers, Start Your Engines” fare sale tickets start today from $79**, restrictions, taxes and fees apply. Tickets must be purchased by 11:59pm PDT June 20, 2011, and travel must occur between August 24, 2011, and November 16, 2011. Tickets are on sale today and can be purchased at Virgin America’s Web site (www.virginamerica.com) and at 1.877.FLY.VIRGIN (1.877.359.8474).***

    To mark the order, engine manufacturer CFM International and parent companies GE and Snecma (Safran Group) will purchase Carbonfund.org offsets for the first 5,000 flights* booked today at www.virginamerica.com. Carbonfund.org, the nation’s leading nonprofit carbon offset provider, offers independently verified projects which are focused on emissions reduction and energy efficiency. Virgin America was the first U.S. airline to allow guests to offset the carbon footprint of their flight from the air – via Carbonfund.org offsets offered on the Red™ in-flight entertainment platform. The airline voluntarily offsets the carbon footprint of its headquarters operation on an annual basis. For more on the program, visit: www.carbonfund.org/virginamerica

    Since its launch in August 2007, Virgin America has created 2000 new jobs and grown to serve multiple destinations across North America. As one of the few growing U.S. airlines, Virgin America continues to expand its fleet, growing from its current 39 aircraft to a projected fleet of 52 aircraft by mid-2012. The low-fare airline has expanded service to Orlando, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Cabos, Cancun and Chicago in the past six months alone. The airline will add 500 new jobs on annual basis and expand to two-to-three new destinations per year over the next several years. Known for friendly service, beautifully designed cabins and inventive amenities, like touch-screen entertainment at every seat, Virgin America has swept the major reader-based travel awards since its launch, including “Best Domestic Airline” in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards and Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards.

    “Virgin continues to lead the industry at making airline travel more sustainable,” said Mindy S. Lubber, president of Ceres, a coalition of investors and NGOs that works with companies on sustainability challenges. “Its purchase of highly-efficient new engines demonstrates that business expansion can be done in a way that is beneficial to both the environment and the bottom line.”

    With investments in the A320neo, LEAP™ engines and green buildings, the California-based Virgin America is committed to improving its efficiency – even as it grows. The airline is also proud to be affiliated with the Virgin Group, which has committed to reinvesting all profits from Virgin-transport related businesses to renewable fuels research and other initiatives that combat climate change.

    LEAP™ is a product of CFM International (CFM), a 50/50 joint company between Snecma (Safran group) and GE.

    Predefinito Cebu Paciifc ordina 30 A321neo, diventando il più grande cliente del tipo

    Cebu Paciifc ordina 30 A321neo, diventando il più grande cliente del tipo.

    Scelta dei reattori non ancora confermata, ma CEB è già cliente CFM.

    CEB doubles fleet again with new USD3.8B Airbus Deal
    The Philippines’ largest national flag carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE:CEB) announced today that it has ordered 30 new Airbus A321neo and 7 A320 aircraft. The order at list price is valued at approximately USD3.8 billion, the largest single aircraft order ever made by a Philippine carrier.

    CEB turned into firm orders its existing options for 7 Airbus A320 aircraft, and has placed a new order for thirty (30) A321neo (New Engine Option) aircraft with options for a further ten (10) A321neos. The A321neos will be a first of its type to operate in the Philippines, being a larger and longer-haul version of the familiar Airbus A320.

    The said orders for A320 and A321neo aircraft will be delivered between 2015 and 2021. These are on top of firm orders for 18 Airbus A320 aircraft to be delivered from the 2nd half of 2011 until 2014. This increases Cebu Pacific’s total firm orders of Airbus aircraft to 55.

    “Cebu Pacific has made the largest firm order for the Airbus A321neo aircraft in the world. These 220-seater aircraft will be a real ‘game changer’ for Cebu Pacific because the A321neo will have a much longer range. We will be able to serve cities in Australia, India and Northern Japan, places the A320 cannot reach,” said CEB CEO and President Lance Gokongwei.

    “The aircraft will reduce our unit cost per seat to a level that cannot be achieved flying A320s. This means that Cebu Pacific will be able to offer even lower fares to our guests and be much more competitive with anyone flying less cost efficient aircraft. This will allow us to create highly skilled, highly paid airline jobs for Filipino pilots, cabin crew and airline staff,” added Gokongwei.

    Cebu Pacific currently utilizes 33 brand-new aircraft, 25 of which are from the Airbus A320 family and 8 ATR turbo-prop aircraft. By 2021, CEB will more than double its fleet and triple its capacity.

    John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers, said, "With the A321neo, Cebu Pacific will be able to fly more people further at significantly lower cost per seat than any other competing aircraft, and with less impact on the environment."

    The A321neo is the largest model in the recently launched A320neo series. It incorporates new engines and large wing-tip devices called sharklets, allowing CEB to achieve 15% reduced fuel burn, and function on a lower operating cost.

    The new engine types offered on the A320neo are CFM International’s LEAP-X and Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G. Cebu Pacific has not made an engine choice at this time.

    Since its inception in 1996, the Philippines’ low-fare pioneer, CEB, had already flown 50 million passengers and counting. It broke local aviation records for passengers carried in a month in April and May of 2011, carrying more than 1 million passengers per month.

    This year, CEB will carry more than 12 million passengers. It achieved a year-on-year growth of 19% in 2010.

    Cebu Pacific to order 30 A321neo aircraft
    Low cost carrier also exercises options for seven more A320s




    16 June 2011 Press Release
    Cebu Pacific of the Philippines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Airbus for the purchase of 30 A321neo aircraft. The carrier has also exercised existing options for seven more standard A320s, increasing to 41 its total firm orders for the Airbus single aisle product line. The aircraft will join an existing fleet of A319s and A320s flying on the carrier's fast growing domestic and regional network.

    "The A320 Family has played a key role in enabling us to build an efficient, profitable, value-based business," said Lance Gokongwei, Cebu Pacific President and CEO. "The addition of more A320s and the A321neo allows us to expand further in the Asia-Pacific region, and continue offering our trademark low fares."

    Cebu Pacific's extensive network covers 33 domestic and 16 international destinations, including Osaka, Seoul (Incheon), Beijing, Jakarta, Bangkok and Singapore.

    "We are pleased that Cebu Pacific has reaffirmed its commitment to the A320 Family and is also now set to add the A321neo to its fleet," said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers, Airbus. "With the A321neo Cebu Pacific will be able to fly more people further at significantly lower cost per seat than any other competing aircraft, and with less impact on the environment."

    The A321neo is the largest model in the recently launched A320neo series, which incorporates new engines and large wing tip devices called sharklets. The advances will deliver fuel savings of 15 percent and additional range capability of over 500 nautical miles (950 kilometers), or the ability to carry two tonnes more payload at a given range. For the environment, the fuel savings translate into some 3,600 tonnes less CO2 per aircraft per year. In addition, the aircraft will provide a double-digit reduction in NOx emissions and reduced engine noise.

    The A320 Family (A318, A319, A320 and A321) is recognised as the benchmark single-aisle aircraft family. Over 7,000 A320 Family aircraft have already been ordered and more than 4,700 delivered to more than 330 customers and operators worldwide. The A320neo series will have over 95% airframe commonality with the existing models, enabling it to fit seamlessly into existing A320 Family fleets

    The new engines types offered on the A320neo Family are CFM International’s LEAP-X and Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G.

    Predefinito GoAir (India) ordina 72 A320neo

    La valanga non si ferma più. E l'airshow di Parigi deve ancora comminciare...

    Indian LCC GoAir inks deal for 72 Airbus A320neo
    By Quintella Koh

    Indian low-cost carrier GoAir has placed a firm order for 72 Airbus A320neo aircraft worth $7.2 billion at list prices.

    The airline expects to take delivery of them from 2015 and complete it by end-2020, said managing director Jeh Wadia. An engine selection between the CFM International Leap-X and Pratt & Whitney PW1100G has not been made, he added.

    Another 10 options for regular A320s have been firmed up, and these will be delivered over the next 18-24 months, said Wadia. GoAir's existing fleet comprises 10 A320s, and the orders will significantly boost its presence in the growing, yet highly competitive, Indian domestic low-cost market.



    Its main competitors are the larger carriers IndiGo and SpiceJet. IndiGo operates a fleet of 39 A320s and, in January, ordered 150 A320neo and 30 regular A320s. SpiceJet has a fleet of 30 Boeing 737-800/900s, with another 33 due to be delivered. It has also ordered 15 Bombardier Q-400 turboprops.

    GoAir intends to use its aircraft to grow its domestic network, saying that this remains "underserved".

    "India will remain underserved beyond 2020, so (GoAir's) focus will be on the domestic market," said Wadia. "India offers a very huge opportunity. China has 1,100 aircraft, while India has only 350."

    GoAir orders 72 new Airbus planes; deal worth $6.1 billion

    MUMBAI: GoAir said on Thursday it has placed an order for 72 new A320 Airbus aircraft in a deal worth up to $6.1 billion at list prices.

    "These are all firm orders and the deliveries will start in 2015. We may take as many as 15 planes each year," the company's managing director Jeh Wadia told Dow Jones Newswires in Mumbai.

    The basic A320 is priced at $85 million, which would value the deal at $6.1 billion, but airlines normally negotiate undisclosed discounts from Airbus when buying in bulk.

    The booming Indian market has become a key source of business for France-based Airbus, which won its biggest ever order in January from GoAir's local competitor IndiGo.

    Indigo ordered 180 A320s, worth $15.6 billion at list prices.

    ET had last week reported that, Jet Airways and GoAir will place aircraft orders worth $6.5 billion with Airbus SAS at the Paris Air Show later this month, signaling that the domestic aviation sector may be turning the corner after grappling with rising fuel prices and slow economic growth.

    Apart from these orders, national carrier Air India plans to take 10 A330s and 16 A320s on a dry lease (to rent an aircraft without the crew). The week-long Paris Air Show will start on June 20. It is the biggest annual event in the commercial aviation industry where some of the biggest deals are struck. GoAir could order more aircraft , one of the sources said.

    Jet Airways' order, confirmed by the company's chairman Naresh Goyal, was for 10 wide-body A330 aircraft worth $2.5 billion and would be used to help it expand its routes in Europe.

    GoAir's Wadia said the firm would take delivery of 10 A320 planes from a previous order in the next two years.

    Predefinito Qantas seleziona A320 per se stessa e Jetstar: 106 di cui 78 neo

    Come da titolo:

    Qantas reveals plans to expand fleet with A320 Family



    Commitment includes 78 A320neo aircraft

    16 August 2011 Press Release
    Qantas has selected for the first time Airbus A320 aircraft to launch its new premium airline to service routes to/from Australia and the Asian region. In addition, Jetstar has selected the Airbus A320 to continue its growth in Australia and Asia. The commitment to order a minimum of 106 A320 Family aircraft includes 78 A320neo jets, making Qantas the latest airline to select the world’s best selling single-aisle aircraft.
    The decision to go with Airbus for its short to medium haul operations underpins the Qantas long term strategy to build up a fleet of the world’s most fuel efficient and reliable aircraft.
    “We are delighted to be investing in Airbus’ fuel efficient A320 Family, including the new A320neo as part of Qantas’ international transformation plan and Jetstar’s pan-Asian expansion.” said Alan Joyce, Qantas CEO. “The A320 Family’s outstanding operational efficiency and comfort, paired with its environmental credentials, make it the right choice for Qantas.”
    “Qantas is an exceptionally forward looking and pioneering airline and we are delighted to play such a significant role in the company’s future strategy.” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “In a fiercely competitive market this is a great endorsement for our eco-efficient A320neo and A320 aircraft with their unique passenger appeal thanks to their wider cabin.”
    The A320neo is a new engine option for the A320 Family to enter service in 2015. It incorporates latest generation engines and large "Sharklet" wing tip devices, which together will deliver 15 percent in fuel and CO2 emission savings.
    In parallel with this new order, Qantas has decided to adapt deliveries of the last six of its twenty A380s to the airline’s new business plan. This affects deliveries after 2013.
    At present, Qantas’ A380 fleet stands at ten, making the carrier the third largest A380 operator worldwide.
    A320 Family orders to date already exceed 7,800, reaffirming its position as the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family. To date over 4,700 have been delivered to over 330 customers and operators worldwide. The A320neo has over 95 percent airframe commonality with the existing A320 models while offering up to 500 nautical miles (950 kilometres) more range or two tonnes more payload. It is offered with engines from CFM International’s LEAP-X or Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G.
    Qantas will make its engine decision at a later date.
    Airbus has received more than 1200 A320neo orders and commitments since its launch just nine months ago, in December 2010.

    Qualche dettaglio in più da Qantas:

    Qantas Group to Place Fleet Order: Building a Stronger Qantas - New international Strategy

    Sydney, 16 August 2011
    The Qantas Group today announced it would acquire up to 110 Airbus A320 aircraft, plus 194 purchase rights and options, to support fleet renewal and growth for the next 10 to 15 years.
    Smart investment in aircraft is part of the Qantas Group’s five-year plan to build a truly modern, customer-focused and competitive global airline business.
    The Group has committed to order up to 110 A320s (106 confirmed from Airbus and four additional aircraft, either purchased or leased, subject to availability). These aircraft will facilitate capacity growth across Jetstar’s domestic and international operations, the launch of Jetstar Japan and the establishment of Qantas’ new premium Asia-focused airline - while the purchase rights and options provide the Group with significant flexibility to pursue further growth opportunities on favourable commercial terms.
    The Group will become a major customer for the new more fuel-efficient A320neo. The commitment for 110 A320s includes 78 A320neos with 194 rights and options on further purchases.
    In addition, as a result of the new strategy and network changes for Qantas international announced today, Qantas will defer the delivery of its final six Airbus A380s by up to six years, driving substantial capital cost savings. Qantas’ A380 fleet will reach 12 aircraft by the end of 2011 and 14 aircraft by mid-2013. The remaining six A380s will be delivered to coincide with the retirement of Qantas’ last six Boeing 747ER aircraft.
    Qantas Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce said the agreement with Airbus represented the most effective allocation of capital to growth opportunities.
    “This is an investment that will position the Qantas Group very strongly in the competitive Asia-Pacific aviation market, while containing costs,” Mr Joyce said.
    “The first of the A320s will be allocated to the new Jetstar Japan venture between the Qantas Group, Japan Airlines and Mitsubishi. We are using the Qantas Group’s scale in the aircraft purchasing market to establish this exciting new airline. Financial management of the fleet will rest with Jetstar Japan and will be funded independently of the Group’s balance sheet.
    “The remainder of the A320 order will go to other new ventures, including Qantas’ premium airline serving the Australia-Asia market, and to renewing Jetstar’s global fleet – giving us the flexibility to meet growth requirements where needed.
    “Our A380 delivery program is well-advanced, while later this year the first of our Boeing 747s reconfigured with A380 product, seats and inflight entertainment will enter service.
    “As our flagship, the A380 is a fabulous aircraft and receives tremendous feedback from our customers. It will continue to lead our long-haul fleet. However, the review and restructure of our international network has led to the decision to defer six of the A380s we have in order.
    “Our priority is to allocate capital to those businesses which provide the best return on investment. In this context we will continue to review our capital expenditure. This is an approach we have taken previously with the cancellation of B787 aircraft, and future B787 deliveries, like all aircraft orders, will be reviewed as required.

    “We are delighted to have reached agreement with Airbus for this important restructuring of our fleet plan, which reflects our commitment to realise growth potential while maintaining prudent financial management.”
    Changes to the Qantas Group fleet plan are as follows:
    - The purchase of between 28 and 32 current-generation A320 aircraft.
    - The purchase of 78 new A320neo aircraft with 194 rights and options for further purchases.
    - The rescheduling of six A380 deliveries by up to six years.

    Predefinito CIT conferma MoU per 50 320neo e firma ordine

    MoU annunciato al #PAS11

    CIT signs firm order for 50 A320neo aircraft




    Top leasing companies continue to favour A320neo

    10 August 2011 Press Release
    CIT Aerospace, a unit of CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT), a global leader in transportation finance has signed a purchase agreement with Airbus for the 50 A320neo family aircraft, which it had committed to at the 49th Le Bourget airshow on 21st June 2011.
    This deal brings the total number of Airbus aircraft ordered by CIT since 1999 to 237 comprising 191 A320 Family aircraft (including the 50 A320neo aircraft), 41 A330s, five A350 XWBs of which 144 have been delivered so far.
    “This A320neo order with Airbus allows CIT Aerospace to continue to add young and technologically-advanced aircraft to our portfolio, enabling us to provide the modern, fuel efficient aircraft that our customers demand,” said C. Jeffrey Knittel, President of Transportation Finance at CIT.

    “This latest order from CIT underscores the leasing market’s continuing strong appetite for modern, fuel efficient and reliable aircraft”, said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “In the short to medium haul segment, the A320neo family with 15 percent lower fuel consumption, is not only good for business but also for the environment”.
    Close to 7,700 A320 Family aircraft have already been ordered and more than 4,700 delivered to more than 330 customers and operators worldwide reaffirming its position as the world’s best-selling single-aisle aircraft family. The A320neo has over 95 percent airframe commonality making it an easy fit into existing fleets while offering up to 500 nautical miles (950 kilometres) more range or two tonnes more payload at a given range.
    The A320neo is a new engine option for the A320 Family entering into service from 2015 and incorporates latest generation engines and large "Sharklet" wing tip devices, which together will deliver 15 percent in fuel savings. This reduction in fuel burn is equivalent to 1.4 million litres of fuel – the consumption of 1,000 mid size cars. This saves 3,600 tonnes of C02 per aircraft per year, the amount of C02 absorbed by 240,000 mature trees. The A320neo NOx emissions are 50% below CAEP/6 and this aircraft also has considerably a smaller noise footprint.
