In two days of the Dubai Airshow 2019, Airbus has announced 220 sales of medium-haul and wide-body aircraft for a total amount worth slightly over $36 billion.
The harvest is being good for Airbus at the Dubai Airshow 2019. After three days of the Dubai Airshow 2019, Airbus has unveiled orders for 220 medium-haul and wide-body aircraft. Total amount of these sales — for almost all firm contracts with the exception of Air Senegal's letter of intent on eight A220-300s — a little over $36 billion, at list price. Among the 220 aircraft, 62 wide-bodies: the lessor Gecas’ twelve Airbus A330neos and Emirates’ fifty A350-900s, following cancellations on the A380. But are these fifty Airbus A350-900 aircraft replacing the initial project concerning thirty A350-900s and forty A330-900s? Or purchase of A330-900s is to be expected in the coming months? Another big announcement for Airbus: Air Arabia’s order for 120 medium-haul aircraft of the A320neo family including 20 A321XLRs. The latter also got two more customers: Gecas with twenty A321XLRs — seven of which being a conversion of A321neo aircraft already purchased — and another low cost airline of the Middle East, Flynas which signed for 10 firm copies.
