Conversions trim A319neo backlog

Airbus has trimmed the backlog for the A319neo after a customer converted orders for three jets to the larger A320neo.

The original order, ascribed to an unidentified customer, was placed in December 2013.

Airbus’s backlog record shows that a single unnamed customer ordered 100 single-aisle jets, including 15 A319s.

The airframer’s latest update, covering the first nine months of this year, shows that three A319neos have been switched.

This trims the A319neo backlog to 53 aircraft, of which 30 are for undisclosed customers. Avianca is taking 20 while the other three are private or government airframes.

While the airframer secured orders for 1,489 A319s the re-engined version has not achieved the same popularity. The aircraft, which carried out its first flight at the end of March last year, has yet to be certified.
