Sharklet retrofit sales gain momentum

Quote:

Airbus’ Sharklets are proving their popularity among customers with demand for the company’s “Sharklet In-service Retrofit” option, which allows operators of older in-service A320 Family aircraft to benefit from these wingtip devices’ significant cost savings and performance improvements – while deliveries also continue for the “Sharklet Production Retrofit” option.

Following the first firm order for Airbus’ in-service retrofit offering – placed by JetBlue last year to equip 110 A320 Family jetliners – total commitments have grown to 191 ship-sets, plus 36 options. The option’s most recent customer is Turkish Airlines, with a firm order for 44 ship-sets.

Overall, around 3,500 A320 Family aircraft in service today are eligible to be retrofitted with Sharklets, which improve the aerodynamics for this benchmark single-aisle product line and significantly reduce fuel burn and emissions by up to four per cent.

The in-service Sharklet retrofits are anticipated to begin during the first half of 2015. The procedure to install them includes some wing structure modifications, as well as adjustments to flight control computer parameters.

For Airbus’ production retrofit option, available to jetliners with “Sharklet-ready” wings, deliveries are proceeding apace. Since early 2013, Airbus has signed with 18 customers for 53 ship-sets – while a significant number of production retrofit sales campaigns are underway, with a specific focus on the Asia-Pacific region.

The production retrofit option, offered since February 2013, is for new aircraft delivered with the latest production standard of wings, which are capable of being fitted with Sharklets without any additional structural reinforcements, and only require adjustments to the flight control computer.

American Airlines did a reshuffle of their monster A320 order which they ultimately placed in 2013 (they did earlier, but Airbus didn't count it because of AA bankruptcy woes). They converted part of their neo order into a ceo order and they also placed new orders for planes they previously intended to lease.
http://www.airbus.com/company/market/orders-deliveries/


The breakdown in numbers:

Conversion:
30x A321neo: cancellation
30x A321ceo: new order instead of the neo order

Orders instead of Lease deals:
34x A321ceo:
7x A319ceo:

Probably related was a cancellation by ILFC
9x A321ceo

Together with 1 order for an A320 by a private customer this has resulted in a net order total for the A320 family of 33. That makes 93 net orders in the 1st 4 months of 2014.

Great livery by the way. The old American one was awful.
