    Indonesian Airline Citilink Orders 25 Airbus A320neo Jets

    European commercial aircraft builder Airbus said Monday it has booked an order for 25 of its A320neo medium-haul jets from Citilink, the low-cost subsidiary of Indonesian airline Garuda Indonesia (PSEOY).
    The order, signed in December, is worth $2.42 billion on the basis of Airbus's price list, although airlines typically negotiate steep discounts for bulk orders.
    The A320neo is a re-engined version of the A320 under development that, with Boeing Co.'s (BA) 737, is the workhorse of low-cost airlines.
    In 2011, Garuda ordered 15 A320neos for itself and another 10 aircraft for Citilink.
    The A320neo is scheduled to enter into service with customer airlines in the autumn of 2015.
    Airbus is the commercial aircraft division of European Aeronautic Defence & Space Co. N.V. (EADSY), a European aerospace company.

    Korean Air to receive seven new aircraft this year

    Korean Air is gearing up to receive seven new aircraft this year: two new A380s, one A330-200, two B777-300ERs and two B737-900ERs, all of which will be used within its long-haul network.
    The additional superjumbos, which will bring the carrier’s current fleet of A380s to eight, are scheduled for delivery in July and October and will be used on flights to New York, Los Angeles, Frankfurt and Atlanta.
    Currently, Korean Air uses the A380 once a day on its double-daily services to New York (see story here) and on seven out of 17 services per week to Los Angeles. From this month onwards, the A380 will be used 14 and 12 times per week on those routes respectively.
    Furthermore, the A380 operated on the Seoul-Frankfurt route for a while last year (see story here) and that is set to resume on February 1 with the double-decker aircraft being used on a daily basis instead of the B777-300.
    In August, the A380 will be deployed on the Seoul-Atlanta route on three out of seven flights per week (see story here).

    Tunisia's Syphax in $600 mn deal to buy 10 Airbus A320s

    CARTHAGE) - Private Tunisian airline Syphax said on Tuesday it has signed an accord with European planemaker Airbus to acquire 10 of its A320 aircraft between 2015 and 2020 in a deal worth $600 million.

    "We have just signed two partnership accords with Safran and Airbus. With Airbus, this is for the acquisition of 10 (A320) planes," said the group's CEO Mohamed Frikha.

    "It is a long-term contract worth around 600 million dollars" and covering the period from 2015 to 2020, he added.

    The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the first meeting of the Tunisia-EU economic consultative council, which took place in a Tunis suburb in the presence of the European Commissioner for industry Antonio Tajani.

    Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali and President Moncef Marzouki are due to meet the European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy, later on Tuesday.

    Syphax was launched shortly after the revolution that toppled former dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali two years ago, and serves destinations in France, Libya and Turkey.

    The EU is the largest trade partner of the north African country, whose economic recovery, after the recession that followed the revolution, has been hampered by the broader economic crisis in Europe.

    American Changing Jet Orders With Boeing, Airbus

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- American Airlines says it has renegotiated jet orders with Boeing Co. to save money and in some cases get a slightly smaller, less expensive version of Boeing's new 787 jet.

    The 787, which Boeing calls the Dreamliner, was delayed during production and has been beset by problems recently, including a fire aboard a Japan Airlines 787 last week in Boston. Federal safety officials are reviewing the plane's design and production.

    American said Monday that it updated deals to buy Boeing 737 and 787 aircraft to save money and move up deliveries of the 787s to November 2014. American said it could substitute up to 20 of the 787-8 planes for 787-9s. The 787-8 is 20 feet shorter, holds up to 250 passengers, and has a list price of $206.8 million, while the 787-9 holds up to 290 passenger and lists for $243.6 million, although airlines routinely get discounts.

    American has never said publicly how much it would pay for the planes.

    The deal also would settle Boeing claims arising from American's bankruptcy filing. American and Boeing settled on the deal Friday, the same day that the Federal Aviation Administration announced its review of the 787 following the incident in Boston and others including fuel leaks and cracked windshields.

    American said it also agreed to changes in delivery dates for planes it will buy from European aircraft maker Airbus.

    American and parent AMR Corp. are operating under bankruptcy protection, and the agreements with the plane makers would need approval by the court. A hearing on the changes was set for Jan. 23.

    The fleet update comes as American prepares to emerge from bankruptcy protection after more than a year. The airline is considering whether to merge with US Airways Group Inc. or stay on its own.

    United orders scimitar-tipped winglet retrofit for 737NG, supplier says
    Print
    By: STEPHEN TRIMBLE WASHINGTON DC 26 minutes ago Source:

    United Airlines has ordered a new, scimitar-shaped split-winglet designed by Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) as a retrofit for the Boeing 737NG series.

    The first retrofitted 737-800 should be delivered after the new winglet achieves airworthiness certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in October, APB says.

    It will become the first of eight 737NG configurations targeted for the retrofit programme, APB adds, noting that FAA certification of split scimitar winglets for the 737-900ER is scheduled in March 2014.

    Turkish Airlines to order over 100 narrow body planes

    ISTANBUL: Turkish Airlines plans to order more than 100 narrow-body planes by the end of March and will finalise five new Airbus A330-300 orders this week on top of 35 wide-body aircraft ordered last year, its chairman told Reuters.

    The world's fastest-growing major carrier is a key battleground for the world's dominant planemakers. Last year it ordered wide-body jets from both Airbus and its rival Boeing in deals worth billions of dollars.

    "I cannot give an exact number for the narrow-body plane orders, but it will very likely be over 100. We aim to finalise this order by the end of March," Turkish Airlines Chairman Hamdi Topcu said in an interview in his office in Istanbul.

    "We ordered 20 Boeing 777-300 and 15 Airbus A330-300 (last year). We want them as soon as possible are in talks to add five more (A330s) to this order. We aim to finalise it this week."

    The company, 49 percent owned by the government with the remainder floated on the Istanbul stock exchange, is considering issuing a bond to finance its expansion but a secondary public offering for the airline is not currently on the government's agenda, he said.

    Topcu said Turkish Airlines was open to closer ties with Lufthansa under any sort of model that brought mutual benefit, but that there were currently no firm plans.

    "The cooperation model with Lufthansa is not yet clear. We are looking into what we can do. We are ready for any such cooperation but no board decision has been taken," he said.

    "If the model to be formed is going to be beneficial for both companies, we are open to any kind of talks."

    Embraer said on Thursday it signed a deal to provide Republic Airways with 47 E-175 jets, with an option to acquire an additional 47 aircraft.

    If all 94 planes were delivered, the value of the contract could reach about USD$4 billion at list prices, Embraer added.

    Republic would operate the new aircraft under the American Eagle brand.

    Ryanair to buy 175 new Boeing planes in deal worth $15.6 billion

    Ryanair has signed a deal with Boeing to buy 175 new Next Generation 737-800 airplanes.

    The airline said that when finalised, the deal will be worth nearly $15.6 billion at current list prices.

    Ryanair said the purchase will allow its airline to grow to more than 400 airplanes.

    It will serve more than 100 million passengers a year across Europe by the time all the planes are delivered in 2018.

    It added that the deal is the largest ever aircraft order from a European airline

    The agreement was signed by Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary and Boeing Commercial Airplanes President Ray Conner in New York today.

    About 75 of these new aircraft will replace some of Ryanair's existing fleet of 305 Boeing 737s, but Ryanair said the remainder will drive new growth of its fleet of ''young, highly efficient airplanes''.
