Airbus has confirmed what has previously been mentioned on this forum and have secured their first direct order from an Isreali Carrier.

Israir, after leasing 2 x A320s (?) have confirmed a direct purchase for 3 x A320. No engine selection has been formalised


Israel based carrier Israir Airlines signed a firm order for three Airbus A320 aircraft on 17th April, 2007, making the airline the first Airbus customer in the country. The deal marks Airbus’ breakthrough in the Israeli market.

The aircraft will be configured in all economy class with 174 seats. Israir Airlines will place the aircraft on routes from Israel to all its European destinations. The engines have yet to be chosen.

“We pride ourselves in offering our passengers a personal and more enjoyable flying experience. Israir Airlines is doing its best to offer the highest possible level of quality and the newest planes, and the Airbus A320 fits in well with our philosophy”, said Zohar Endelman, Israir President & CEO.

This press release will be available shortly on http://www.airbus.com

No mention has been made of their long haul requirement and given that this is their first direct sale into Isreal for Airbus it's worth it's own thread.

Great news for airbus as well as Israir. Glad it was the A320, not the 737

What do you have against the 737? It's a fine aircraft.

Another 2 A320s in the backlog is not very important, but nice to see Airbus break the ice in Israel.

Now all they need is an A330 order from ElAl. Those 767s are ancient!
