Airbus sells 121 aircraft Tuesday at the Paris Air Show, bringing its total show sales to 265



PARIS, 21 June 2011. European passenger jet manufacturer Airbus of Toulouse, France, had a big day for passenger aircraft sales today at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, France, inking deals for 121 passenger jets with four different airline and aviation companies, which by rough count brings total Airbus airplane sales during the first two days of the Paris Air Show to 265. Airbus, a division of European aerospace giant EADS, sold 144 aircraft on Monday and 121 aircraft so far today.

Airbus announced aircraft deals today with JetBlue Airways Corp. of Forest Hills, N.Y.; Garuda Indonesia of Jakarta Indonesia; CIT Group Inc. in Livingston, N.J; and TransAsia Airways of Taiwan in Taipei, Taiwan involving versions of the Airbus A320 single-aisle narrow-body passenger jet.

Airbus today sold 40 A320neo aircraft to JetBlue, 25 A320s to Garuda Indonesia, 50 A320neo aircraft to CIT Group, and six A321neo aircraft to TransAsia. The aircraft maker's neo designation stands for new engine option.

JetBlue also is converting 30 of its orders for the Airbus A320 jet to the larger A321 model with sharklet wingtip devices. JetBlue has ordered a total of 173 Airbus A320 versions.

Garuda Indonesia's Airbus order involves 15 standard A320s and 10 A320neo aircraft. Garuda will use the new Airbus aircraft to replace its existing 737 fleet on the carrier's domestic low-cost Citilink unit, Airbus officials say.

Aircraft leaser CIT Group is ordering 50 A320neo aircraft, which brings its total number of aircraft ordered from Airbus to 241 aircraft, Airbus officials say.

TransAsia will use its six A321neo aircraft on regional service between Taiwan and China. The airline now operates five A321s and two A320s on domestic and regional services, Airbus officials say.

On Monday Airbus sold 144 aircraft -- 50 A320neo models to Air Lease Corp. in Los Angeles; 60 A320neo aircraft to GE Capital Aviation Services in Stamford, Conn.; 30 A320neo aircraft to SAS Scandinavian Airlines in Solna, Sweden; and four A330-300 aircraft to Saudi Arabian Airlines in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
