AirAsia confirms order for 100 A321neo aircraft with Airbus

Malaysian low-cost airline AirAsia has finalised a deal with Airbus to buy 100 A321neo aircraft for an undisclosed sum. The new order enables AirAsia to increase its capacity and offer minimal operating costs in the single-aisle category.



With the order, AirAsia’s total number of A320 family aircraft will increase to 575. Once delivered, the new A321neo will be run on the airline’s most popular routes and especially at airports, which suffer infrastructure issues. AirAsia group CEO Tony Fernandes said: “AirAsia Group currently operates close to 1,000 flights per day to more than 120 destinations in 24 countries.

“We recorded a robust load factor of 85% in the first quarter of 2016, up eight percentage points from the same period last year, and we are confident of maintaining this momentum going forward. “The A321neo will help us to meet ongoing strong demand, as well as further reduce our cost per available seat kilometre across the group, which will translate to lower air fares for our guests.”

The airline has so far received more than 170 A320s that are being deployed in Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Japan and the Philippines.

Airbus’ A321neo family aircraft can accommodate up to 240 passengers in a single-class layout and is equipped with new generation engines and Sharklet wing tip devices. Meanwhile, Airbus has won an order from Indian low-cost airline Go Air for 72 A320neo aircraft, as well as secured another order from Germania Group for 25 A320neos.

Is LEAP much cheaper? Why'd anyone go for LEAP when you can get PW? In a couple of years PW will iron out all the flaws and then you get a much more efficient engine for the next 15 years.

Air Asia chose CFM LEAP-1A for their newly ordered A321neo fleet. It's big push for CFM.
Quote:
AIRASIA PLACES $2.7 BILLION CFM LEAP ENGINE ORDER TO POWER NEW AIRBUS A321NEO AIRCRAFT

LONDON, England — 13 July 2016 – In a special ceremony here today, AirAsia announced that it has ordered 200 additional CFM International LEAP-1A engines to power 100 new Airbus A321neo announced yesterday. The order, which expands its LEAP engine fleet to nearly 730 engines, is valued at $2.7 billion U.S. at list price.

“This order for the larger A321neo is an important element in our long-term growth and expansion strategy,” said Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Group. ““Choosing the right engine to power them is critical to the success of that strategy. For us, the LEAP-1A was the obvious choice. This engine has demonstrated the promised 15 percent fuel efficiency and we are quite familiar with the reliability inherent in CFM products and the impact that this has on our operations.”

AirAsia, a pioneer in low-cost travel, has been a CFM customer for more than a decade. AirAsia was an early LEAP customer and placed its initial order for 400 LEAP-1A engines — the largest in aviation history at the time — to power A320neo aircraft in June 2011. The airline placed a follow-on order for 128 additional engines in 2013.

As the single largest Airbus A320 operator in the Asia-Pacific region, AirAsia operates a fleet of 170 CFM56-5B-powered Airbus A320s with 304 still to be delivered. AirAsia began operations in 2001 and has continued to see steady growth. Today, the airline and its subsidiaries operate close to 1,000 flights per day to more than 120 destinations in 24 countries.
“We believe there is no greater endorsement of the technology choices we have made for the LEAP engine than the continued confidence of an airline such as AirAsia,” said Jean-Paul Ebanga, president and CEO of CFM International. “We are looking proving to them every that they have made the right choice.”

“We love working with AirAsia and can’t wait to get the LEAP-1A into their fleet later this year,” said Chaker Chahrour, vice president of global sales and marketing for CFM parent company GE Aviation. “In many ways, AirAsia and CFM has grown up together in the past 25 years and we are honored to be part of one of the most dynamic, successful teams in the industry today.”
The LEAP-1A engine powered the first flight of the Airbus A321neo in February 2016. The engine is on track for entry into service in mid-2016 on the initial A320neo and will provide operators with a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, with an equivalent reduction in CO2 emissions; a 50 percent margin to new emissions regulations; a dramatically lower noise signature; and CFM’s industry-leading reliability and low overall operating costs.

Go Air | Airbus A320Neo | VT-WGB at CSIA Mumbai

Local time is 06:05 am and the sun is yet to completely rise over Mumbai as domestic duties begin for this newest bird in the G8 fleet!
Go Air became the 2nd operator of this class in India when it took delivery of sister ship VT-WGA in June 2016

Apropos the vast orders for A320neos emanating from India ( and Air Asia who will also fly there) . It seems that there is nowhere to put them all.

India plans to invest $5 billion to improve airport infrastructure, which is "inadequate" compared with China’s proposal for $130 billion in 15 years, a June research paper by KPMG and the Associated Chambers of Commerce of India said.
Its not that traffic is not growing but it is growing in congested airports with no long term development vision or cash. Most Indian airports have no commercial flights at all. I see deferrals kicking in sooner rather than later, and Airbus have by far the largest order pipeline.

I think it's fairly obvious that the Indian LCCs are either taking a page out of Lion, Norwegian and AirAsia and intend to enter the leasing business, or are prepping themselves to be beautiful brides as they await a rich, attractive and foreign suitor. None of them, not even IndiGo or GoAir, look even remotely sincere or committed to the Indian consumer for the long term. TBH, I'm not surprised if the LCCs are secretly backing the lobbies and NIMBYs preventing the expansion of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai airports.

I just read that Airbus has officially retired the first A320 built, F-WWBA (MSN001). I believe that plane is headed to a museum.

Any idea who the launch customers are for the A321neo Leap and Pratt variants, allegedly around Christmas.
