Airbus expanded its order book for the best-selling A320 Family in June with contracts for 27 of the single-aisle jetliners in both the NEO (new engine option) and CEO (current engine option) versions, while a combined total of 64 aircraft were delivered during the month from the A320, A330, A350XWB and A380 product lines.

The June bookings came from five undisclosed customers, covering 11 A320neo and four A321neo aircraft, along with 12 A321ceo versions.

Taking cancellations into account, the net orders logged in 2016 by Airbus through June 30 totalled 183 aircraft.

The month’s deliveries were led by 52 A320 Family aircraft, including another A320neo for Mumbai, India-based GoAir, powered by Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower 1100G-JM engines; along with eight A321ceo jetliners which were provided to six Chinese operators.

Also in June, Airbus delivered six A330s, including aircraft for two new operators: Tibet Airlines and French Blue, bringing total users of the twin-engine widebody jetliner to 118. Receiving one A350XWB each during the month were Finnair, Singapore Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines (Africa’s first carrier to take delivery of the Xtra widebody aircraft).

Completing the month’s deliveries were the handover of two A380s to Emirates (increasing its double-deck Airbus flagship fleet to more than 80), as well as one A380 for British Airways.

Taking June’s orders and deliveries into account, Airbus’ backlog stood at 6,716 aircraft to be delivered at month-end.
