Airbus A330 - Close To Breaking Sales Record.

Posted (7 years 3 months 3 weeks 6 days 10 hours ago) and read 23336 times:

Since the beginning of 2007, Airbus has received a total of 105 orders/commitments for the A330 family.

AIRBUS A330-200


Aercap x 10
Oman Air x 5
Avianca x 5

AIRBUS A330-200F


Avion Aircraft Trading x 8
Flyington x 6
Guggenheim x 6
MNG Cargo x 2
Intrepid x 20
AIRBUS A330-200 (MRTT/TANKER)


Royal Air Force x 14
Royal Saudi Air Force x 2
United Arab Emirates Air Force x 3

AIRBUS A330-300


Aer Lingus x 6
Air AsiaX x 10
Thai International x 8

Total: 105 frames.

The following are the top 3 years of sales for the A330 family:

2000 = 110 frames
1989 = 107 frames
2006 = 104 frames.


With such a fantastic result in less than six months, and with the various rumours floating around one can easily conclude that if Airbus manages to sign up all the pending orders and some additional frames until December, then 2007 will in fact be the best year ever for the A330 family.

Regards,
Wings

Wings,

The title of post has nothing to do with the text. What is the "sales record" the A330 is about to break?

Nice list WINGS!

Yeah, this is quite an achievement, especially considering the fact, that Boeing is on the verge of making the first flight with the 787. I hear second hand A330s are very hard to come by as well (remember how airlines were basically competing over OS birds?)

The Airbus A330 will go down in history as one of the finest commercial planes designed. Its timing was spot-on as well.

By the way, great thread Wings, as usual.

I'm not surprised the A330 keeps racking up sales. It's still a very efficent, modern aircraft and an ideal solution for many airlines. One hundred and five frames in less than 6 months is a very impressive sales figure for a widebody aircraft and clear proof this is still a very viable product.

Looks like your earlier prediction about the best is yet to come for the A330 was right on the money, Wings. Big grin

The A330 is heading for its own "best in a year" record and thus, technically not breaking any record set by another Airbus model or some other manufacturer.....thus 424218 is correct...there is no "sales record being broken... smile

Great post 'ASAS'!  Wink

I really wonder how many it would have sold if the A380 was launched as schedule? Many recent sales were due to the A380 being delayed... so its possibly a bittersweet record to reflect the current times at Airbus. but many more sales were not and sold based on pure merit of being a very modern and efficient plane.

The A330 along with the A320 is the best of Airbus right now and possibly in that segment it serves.

Congratulations!

It's breaking its record, so surely that counts for something!

On a more serious note, it's notable that A330 sales have continued strongly despite the launch of the much more efficient 787. Following this logic, one can expect 773ER sales to continue strongly for the next few years despite the launch of the much more efficient A350!

I seriously fail to see the logic. It is a rather simple task to understand my point. The A330 is breaking its own sales record. That Sir means a lot especially as the 787 is on the horizon.

This fact makes the A330 breaking its own order record more incredible. Imagine if EK did order some A330's and the USAF did order A330 tankers... This would be a mammoth year for the A330 despite all the odds!

(Although to be honest I do not see the USAF ordering any A330 tankers. They'll stick with the 767.)

The Aer Lingus announcement today about the 6x A330 has thrown up some new A330 material to ponder upon.... The A330E. Could this be helping with the recent order surge for the A330?

When there's only one participant, it's hard to call it a record, except internally.

It should just read: best year ever or something like that.

Boeing is far behind, as they have yet to sell a singe A330! It's astounding that Boeing can't even manage to sell one single A330 in 18 years...

Not particularly sure why this was necessary.

However, IIRC, haven't they managed to sell a couple of A340's?

Oh, you mean that Avianca, Flyington, Oman Air, Intrepid, Guggenheim, AirAsiaX, and all the others listed above bought the A330 because the A380 is delayed? Do you have inside information that the above mentioned airlines really wanted to buy A380s, but that the delay made them buy A330s instead?

If the USAF did order the A330 tanker conversion (which they haven't as far as I know), why wouldn't they count? Boeing includes the 60 KC-10 tankers built for the USAF in the total of 446 DC-10s built in the orders/deliveries section of their website.

2007 will be the best year ever for the A330. I think we will have 200++ A330 firm orders before december 31st.
