Airbus, Boeing compete for mega deals at Paris Air Show

Jun 20 2013, 2:01am CDT | by

Paris, June 20 (IANS) Two world aviation industry giants, Airbus and Boeing, are engaged in fierce commercial battles for winning big orders for their long-haul airplanes at the 2013 International Paris Air Show.

Paris, June 20 — Two world aviation industry giants, Airbus and Boeing, are engaged in fierce commercial battles for winning big orders for their long-haul airplanes at the 2013 International Paris Air Show.

As the leading European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus Wednesday announced that Air France-KLM has ordered 25 Airbus A350 planes at list prices of $7.2 billion with an option for 25 additional aircraft, reported Xinhua.

A350 is a new model, fuel-efficient airplane of Airbus. Most importantly, it is a key jet that the European plane maker expects to use to compete with 787 and 777, Boeing's next-generation jets which are also fuel-saving, in the world's long-haul, wide-body airplane market.

Both the new planes of Airbus and Boeing are made of lighter composite materials that help reduce fuel consumption and pollution.

Sri Lankan Airlines also promised Airbus an order of six long-haul A330 and four A350 aircraft at list prices of $2.6 billion.

Meanwhile, the giant American airplane firm Boeing won orders for more than 200 airplanes from its 737 family Wednesday, following Tuesday's mega order commitments for 102 airplanes from five customers across Europe, Asia and North America.

The biggest customer came from Ireland, Europe's biggest low-cost airline Ryanair. The Irish carrier firmed up an order for 175 Boeing 737-800 aircraft with a catalogue price of $15.6 billion. The company was working on placing an order for at least 200 fuel-saving 737 MAX airplane within this year, with the value estimated at $20 billion.

Another customer of Boeing is the Czech Travel Service, which made an order for three 737 MAX at a cost of $301.5 million. As a new generation of 737, the cost-saving 737 MAX is expected to come into service in 2017.

Give-or-take a $1 trillion: Boeing, Airbus disagree on 20-year demand for planes

Sep 25 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: Seattle Business Journal

Airbus Group predicts the aerospace industry will need to purchase more than 31,000 new aircraft worth $4.6 trillion over the next 20 years to meet demand in emerging markets. Boeing disagrees. Boeing reported a potential demand for more than 36,000 new planes worth $5.2 trillion. The 20-year market forecast report by France-based Airbus was released earlier this week. Boeing’s similar report, released in July, speculates the demand will be greater. But either way, it' ...
