Paris 2009: AirAsia rocks into Paris with huge A350 order

AirAsia’s $2.4 billion order for 10 Airbus A350 XWBs could turn out to be the biggest order of the 2009 Paris Air Show.

In a sweltering press room, AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes stole the show and the hearts of Airbus. The Transport Ministers of France and Malaysia also turned up to show their support and EADS head Louis Gallois came along to join in the fun.

In the press conference Tony thanked Leahy for his efforts in making the deal happen. “I don’t know your title,” said Tony, introducing Leahy. “Somebody who sells,” joked Leahy.

Above: No ties gentleman? Well Tony never wears a tie. I gestured to Tom Enders about his lack of tie (not usual you see) and pointed to Tony. Enders nods. He has discarded his corporate emblem in true low-cost carrier fashion, in honour of one of his company’s largest customers.

Speaking at the press conference, Enders said: “This order is proof there are some rays of sunshine in the market.”
