A220 deal helps lift Airbus net orders total above 100

Airbus has disclosed an order for 14 A220s, comprising both variants of the twinjet, from an undisclosed customer.

It includes 10 A220-100s and four of the larger -300 model.

The order has been listed in the airframer's latest backlog revision, covering the nine months to the end of September.

It brings to 525 the total number of A220s ordered, of which 99 are the -100 version.

Airbus has listed the additional 12 A330-900s for AirAsia, originally disclosed by the carrier in August.

It has also revealed an order for 10 A321neos. Curiously, one version of the updated backlog lists these against the same customer as the A330-900s – namely AirAsia – while another version attributes them to a separate unidentified customer.

Five A320neos for lessor AerCap wrap up Airbus's firm agreements for the month, taking net orders for 2019 into triple figures with a total of 127.

Airbus deliveries reached 571 for the three-quarter mark of the year. It is aiming to deliver 880-890 aircraft this year, meaning that 309-319 will need to be handed over in the fourth quarter.
