Airbus backlog revision features 75 more A320s

Airbus has newly added 75 A320-family jets to its backlog figures, with two firm agreements with undisclosed customers.

The larger of the two orders comprises 45 A320neo and 15 A321neo jets.

While the customer has not been identified, these figures match an order unveiled by Chinese carrier Spring Airlines last year – an order which has not appeared in the backlog since.

Airbus’s revised backlog data, covering the first five months of this year, also includes a single deal for 12 A320s and three A321s.

Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific has converted its outstanding order for two A320s to a pair of A321neos, taking its overall A321neo commitment to 32.

Airbus secured gross orders for 200 aircraft to 31 May, with a net total of 162.

It delivered 234 jets over the five-month period – including 192 A320-family jets compared with 196 last year.

Airbus also handed over nine A350s. The airframer is aiming to deliver around 50 this year.
