    Indonesian Growth Boosts Singapore Airshow

    Southeast Asia, rather than the behemoth economies of China and India, provided the bulk of the sales impetus for the 2012 Singapore Airshow.More specifically, it was from Singapore’s neighbor Indonesia that the latest wave of airline fleet modernization came when
    Lion Air confirmed a massive order for 201 of Boeing’s new 737Max-9 narrowbodies, plus 29 of the existing 737-900ERs.
    Lion Air had in fact made provisional commitments for the aircraft at last November’s Dubai Air Show but the fact
    that the deal has been firmed up so quickly and conclusively is undoubtedly good news for Boeing.

    Airbus set to lose A380 order over carbon trade dispute

    Hong Kong Airlines is threatening to scrap an order for 10 Airbus A380 superjumbo jets, a Chinese newspaper has reported. The cancellation is said to be in response to an EU carbon charge imposed on global airlines.
    Honk Kong Airlines – a subsidiary of Chinese carrier Hainan Airlines – said it was under pressure from the government in Beijing to cancel the order worth an estimated $3.8 billion (2.85 billion euros), the South China Morning newspaper reported.
    "We cannot do something which is against our country's interest," Hong Kong Airlines president Yang Jianhong is quoted by the newspaper as saying.

    Air Astana order four 767-300ER and three 787 Dreamliner aircraft

    “Our decision to order the Boeing airplanes is part of Air Astana’s long-term growth strategy to expand and modernize our fleet with newer, more fuel-efficient airplanes to serve domestic, regional and international routes,” said Peter Foster, president, Air Astana.

    “In addition, we want to offer an enhanced travel experience for our customers which we shall be able to do on these airplanes.”

    In addition to bringing big-jet ranges to mid-size airplanes, the 787 provides airlines with unmatched fuel efficiency using 20 percent less fuel than today’s similarly sized airplanes. Passengers will also see improvements on the 787, from an interior environment with higher humidity to increased comfort and convenience.

    China Southern buys 10 Boeing 777s

    China Southern Airlines announced a deal Tuesday with the Boeing Co. for 10 of its 777 aircraft.
    The carrier has agreed to buy ten Everett-built 777-300 Extended Range jets, it said in a statement.
    The deal is worth nearly $3 billion at list prices, though the carrier said it got "significant price concessions" from Boeing. China Southern said that it would lose the price concessions if it disclosed publicly the purchase price, though it had asked Boeing to do so.

    This is the first time China Southern has bought 777-300ER jets from Boeing. But the carrier has ordered 777 freighters and 777-200 aircraft.Boeing is to deliver the 777s from 2013 to 2016.
    Last week, Boeing announced a change to its 777 management team, possibly signaling the company's intent
    to develop the next version of the 777 soon.

    DOHA: Abu Dhabi owned Etihad Airways said on Tuesday it has reduced firm orders for Airbus A350-1000 jetliners, but is retaining options to buy more of the aircraft. Etihad was confirming an earlier report it had cut its firm orders to 19 aircraft from 25.

    “While we will be reducing our firm orders, our 25 options and purchase rights for this fleet remain in place and will no doubt play a crucial role in the airline’s growth,” the spokesman added.

    A spokesman for Airbus confirmed Etihad had canceled some planes. Yes, linked to their fleet requirements which evolve over time and can change,” the spokesman said in an emailed statement.

    Jet Airways orders 17 Boeing 737s

    WASHINGTON: Jet Airways has converted its options to buy Boeing 737 mid-range from the US aircraft manufacturer into a purchase agreement.

    "Jet Airways of India has placed order for 17 Boeing 737 aircraft," a spokesman of Boeing told PTI here.

    The spokesman, however, did not give any further detail, saying that it is up to the Jet Airways to make the announcement.

    Indian aviation industry sources said the premier private carrier could have converted its options to acquire 10 of these planes into purchase agreements.

    The airline, which had given firm orders almost four years ago for 11 Boeing 737-800s with options to buy ten more, had received the first of these planes in September last year.

    Hong Kong Airlines places $3.8bn Airbus A380 order

    Hong Kong Airlines (HKA) has placed an order for 10 Airbus A380 aircraft worth about $3.8bn (£2.5bn) at list prices.
    The contract will be a relief for the European planemaker, as the order risked being derailed by a dispute between the European Union and China.
    Beijing opposes an EU plan that international airlines comply with a scheme to tackle carbon emissions.
    But Kenneth Thong, HKA's corporate governance head, told a television interview the order would go ahead.
    The carrier, which has ambitious expansion plans, is likely to have got a big discount on the order for the super-jumbo aircraft.

    Transaero inks MoU for four Boeing 787s

    Transaero Airlines (UN) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Boeing for four Boeing 787s. The deal is valued at $774 million at list prices.
    The aircraft will feature three-class cabins seating about 262 passengers, according to UN. The carrier did not disclose the delivery dates but market experts said the first aircraft is planned for 2014.
    Over the last few months, UN has signed the MoUs for four Airbus A380s (ATW Daily News, Oct. 31), four Boeing 747s Intercontinentals (ATW Daily News, Nov. 9) and placed a firm order for eight Airbus A320neos. (ATW Daily News, Dec. 6). The carrier was the first Russian customer for the neo.
    S7 Airlines (S7) was the first Russian carrier to order 787s, with a deal for 15 aircraft placed in 2007. However, in 2009 S7 declined these aircraft because of the economic crisis. Aeroflot (SU) ordered 22 787s in 2007 and is scheduled to receive the first of those aircraft in 2016. In a later deal, SU agreed to buy two more 787s and those are scheduled to be delivered in 2014 before the winter Olympics in Sochi.

    Southwest orders 208 Boeing 737s valued at $19B

    Southwest Airlines Co. on Tuesday said it ordered 208 new Boeing 737 aircraft with a value of nearly $19 billion.

    The Dallas airline, which operates an all-Boeing fleet, placed a firm order for 150 of the 737 Max, a new version of Boeing's most popular plane with more fuel-efficient engines. Southwest also ordered 58 next-generation 737s.

    Because discounts are common, Southwest won't pay the full $19 billion list price.

    Southwest has bought more 737s than any other airline. Boeing says Southwest, which flies more U.S. passengers than any other carrier, is the first customer to finalize an order for the 737 Max. Including this order, Boeing now has orders or commitments from 13 customers for more than 900 of the new model.
