The month in review: December 2014

Airbus completed 2014 on a high note, adding the sales of 468 jetliners to its order book in December – involving the A320, A330 and A350 XWB product lines; while providing a best-ever performance in deliveries with the 75 aircraft provided to international customers during the month.

The new business logged at year-end was composed of orders for 113 aircraft in the A319, A320, A321ceo (current engine option) versions; 259 in the A320/A321neo (new engine option) configurations; eight A330-200/A330-300 jetliners and 80 A330neos; along with eight A350s.

Notable among these bookings were the month’s four new A330neo customers, which placed their initial firm orders for all of the A330 new engine option versions contracted in December: AirAsia X, with 55 A330-900neo jetliners; 15 of the A330-900neo variant for Avolon; six A330-800neos for Hawaiian Airlines; and Transasia Airlines’ four A330-800neo aircraft.

Also in the widebody sector, Airbus’ new A350 XWB logged a repeat order from Finnair, which signed for eight A350-900s.

December’s 372 sales for the single-aisle A320 Family included bookings from seven new clients for NEO versions: China Aircraft Leasing Company, Yemenia and five unidentified customers.

With the new business in December – and taking cancellations during the 12 months into account – Airbus completed 2014 with 1,456 net orders for the year.     

A total of 75 deliveries were listed in December, composed of 54 A320 Family aircraft, 15 A330s, one A350 and five A380s.  In addition to being a one-month high for Airbus, it also marked the best performance during a month for the A330.  The December delivery highlights included Airbus’ milestone first A350 XWB provided to an airline, an A350-900 received by Qatar Airways; along with the first A330-300 for SriLankan Airlines.  

Overall, Airbus delivered 629 aircraft to 89 customers in 2014, consisting of 490 A320 Family jetliners, 108 A330s, 30 A380s and one A350 XWB. 

As of December 31, the Airbus order backlog was at 6,386 aircraft (3,621 A320neo versions and 1,508 A320ceos; 193 A330ceo and 120 A330neo jetliners, 779 A350 XWBs, and 165 A380s).
