Airbus takes orders for 10 more A350s and 10 A330neos

Airbus has disclosed an order for 10 more A350-900s as well as 10 A330neo twinjets, attributing both agreements to undisclosed customers.

The airframer revealed the agreements in its first-half order backlog figures. It states that the A350s have been ordered by a new customer for the type.

Its long-haul business benefited from the formal recording of an order for 25 A350-900s from Turkish Airlines during June.

The combined agreements take overall A350 orders to 882 aircraft and A330neo orders to 224.

British Airways parent IAG also ordered two A330-200s.

IAG chief Willie Walsh had mentioned, in May, that the company's board had approved acquisition of two more aircraft for its budget division Level, which uses A330s for long-haul services.

Airbus has also listed an order for 20 A320neos – again, for an unidentified customer – as well as orders for 30 A320neo-family jets from Aegean Airlines and three A320s for Lufthansa.

They lift Airbus's first-half net orders above the 200-aircraft mark. The airframer recorded 206 net orders for the six-month period – three more than in 2017 – and achieved 303 deliveries, three fewer than last year.
