BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese airlines signed orders worth about $3.2 billion (1.7 billion pounds) for 30 Airbus aircraft on Thursday, including five A380 superjumbos for China Southern Airlines, as the European EADS affiliate made further inroads into the booming market.
The remaining aircraft, for Shenzhen Airlines and China Eastern, were all from Airbus's hot-selling A320 family of narrow-body planes.

The deals were confirmed in a joint agreement at a signing ceremony attended by Premier Wen Jiabao and French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin in Beijing.

Some of the orders, including that for the A380s, had been announced previously.

Airbus is 80 percent owned by European Aeronautic Defence & Space Co. N.V. of Germany and France and 20 percent by Britain's BAE Systems Plc. "

Good news for Airbus, after all those Boeing orders it's nice to see Airbus got some nice orders, too.

The details is:

1. China Southern Airlines: 5xA380
2. China Eastern Airlines: 5xA319, 4xA320, 11xA321
3. China Shenzhen Airlines: 2xA319, 3xA320

Shenzhen Airlines used to be a all-Boeing carrier (with B733, B737, B738 & B739-on order). They are counting on the new Airbus a/c to expand their routes to highland airports such as Lasa city in Tibet.
