Airbus marked a busy June with 138 aircraft ordered from its A320 and A330 families by airlines and leasing companies – including high-profile announcements made at the Paris Air Show – while delivering 64 jetliners during the month in the A320, A330 and A350 XWB product range.

Leading the new business in June was the booking for 100 A320neo (New Engine Option) Family aircraft by GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) – the U.S. and Irish commercial leasing and financing arm of General Electric. This transaction brings GECAS’ total jetliners ordered from Airbus to almost 600 – of which 220 are from the A320neo Family.

Another lessor placing an order last month was U.S.-based Air Lease Corporation (ALC), acquiring 12 A321neo jetliners. The Los Angeles-headquartered company’s incremental order raises its overall number of aircraft received from Airbus or on order to 279 – of which 209 are from the single-aisle A320 Family, and the remaining 70 being widebodies.

In other activity from the U.S. market, Delta Air Lines placed an order for 10 additional A320 Family aircraft – selecting the longest-fuselage A321ceo (Current Engine Option) configuration for this latest booking with Airbus.

Completing the month’s single-aisle transactions were orders by Cebu Air of the Philippines for seven A321ceo versions, Yemenia-Yemen Airways’ booking for four A320neo aircraft, and three A320ceo jetliners for Vueling of Spain.

In the widebody category, Hi Fly placed its first direct firm order with Airbus – acquiring two A330-200s. The Portuguese airline specialist in wet leasing of widebody aircraft worldwide already operates an all-Airbus fleet of 14 aircraft.

Taking June’s conversions and cancellations into account, Airbus’ net orders for the first six months of 2017 totalled 203 jetliners.

Deliveries in June were composed of 50 A320 Family aircraft (including 11 A320neo/A321neo versions), six A330-200/A330-300s, and eight A350-900s. These 64 aircraft were received by 43 customers.

Among the month’s delivery highlights were the first A321neo deliveries to three operators: WOW air, the Icelandic low-fare carrier; Swedish charter airline Novair; and SriLankan Airlines. Also in June, Airbus provided easyJet’s first A320neo aircraft, which became the 300th A320 Family jetliner to join this airline’s fleet (and was one of five deliveries made to easyJet during the month).

Based on this latest orders and deliveries activity, Airbus’ overall backlog of jetliners to be delivered stood at 6,771 as of June 30, representing approximately nine years of production at current rates.
