On 26 June 2008 the board of Directors of Company approved the Airbus Aircraft Purchase Agreement among the Company, AIE and Airbus Company and pursuant to which the Company has agreed to purchase 20 Airbus 330-Series aircraft from Airbus Company.



Quote:
The Company is expecting to take delivery of the Airbus Aircraft in stages from early 2011 to 2014.

Good year for the A330 and only getting better.

Is this in addition to the orders the Chinese Govt placed last year, or are these the orders announced last year for Sarkozy's trip?

These seem to be additional. The stock exchange statement mentioned about the 2007 purchase as a separate transaction.

This should be part of the 50 A330s that the Chinese government announced they intended to buy last November. Those 50 were not included in Airbus' 2007 order totals.

Thats what I was thinking. The articles I have read semed to be a new order, but as you said, the 50 announced last year had not been booked. Has Airbus booked any of the A320s, or are they doing this order how Boeing does, when they are firmed to each airline? (Just asking, lets not argue which is better or more proper)

They ordered 20 A330-200s on the 21st of July 2005, so far, according to Airbus they have 16 of them. Anybody know if these are going to be 200s or 300s? If 300s then it marks a further shift towards this model.

The -200s are all gone and the -300ERs (at least the leased ones) have been extended to cover the delay in the 787 and for the Olympics. Not sure of the fate of the few ordinary -300s though.

Some good news for AB on a day that the first (of many I fear) large cancellation of this downturn as come to light.

A great year for the A330 though, the 1000th order for the A330 in its own right can't be far away:

End of May 08 firm sales A332/A332F/A333 = 943

Sales announced this month:

Air One 12 x A332
China 20 x A330
GF - 20 x A333

Those along with a number of "MIA" orders - the Groupo Marsans springs to mind brings me to beleive that it won't be long till the 1000 comes up - the first non-Boeing, widebodied, passenger jet to do this! Definitely before the end of the year and probably at the end of July (after Farnborough). The only concern would be it falling back below 1000 if some orders are cancelled.

Which cancellation are you referring to? Did I miss something?

Wonder which engines will be selected? I hope it is RR

It's not been confirmed but some rationalisation has been on the cards since the IT Air Deccan merger.

Seems likely. The existing Air China fleet is all RR. In fact, every A330 in China and Hong Kong has RR...  bigthumbsup

@PM : I am sure that this news made your day (again!). In fact, I am not too unhappy about that either! Big grin Big grin Big grin

Good news for Airbus and RR in my opinion!

If this is true (and it seems likely) then it will make Air China the (joint) biggest operator of A330s in the world. Cathay have 40 in service or on order. So will Air China. (Northwest have 32.)

It will also take 171 (!!!) the number of A330s in mainland China + Hong Kong.

And each and every one with RR...!!!  praise

Well, to be fair, the PW4000 seems to be the second best engine option on the A330. What amazes me is the 22% of orders for the GE CF6. What were they thinking of?!
