Airbus' net order total for 2009 remains unchanged at just 11 aircraft following another dismal month for sales.

It recorded an order for a single A330-200 in May, from lessor International Lease Finance (ILFC), but this was negated by an A330-200 cancellation from Aircastle.

Aircastle, which had five A330-200s on order in April, is now listed as having four. Its backlog still includes seven A330 freighters.

Airbus' only other sale for the month was an A320 to a new customer, Asiawide, a carrier linked with the owners of Philippine carrier Zest Airways.

The manufacturer has delivered 205 aircraft so far this year including 170 narrowbodies. It delivered its second A380 of 2009 during May, to Singapore Airlines.

While the order figures appear poor, the Paris Air Show - taking place this month - frequently has a distorting effect as a result of agreements being deferred to coincide with the event.
