Airbus press release (the only official source):

Indigo Partners doubles existing A320neo Family order with commitment for additional 430 aircraft


http://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press...ily-order.html

Quote:
Valued at $49.5 billion, this is Airbus’ largest single announcement ever

Airbus, Indigo Partners’ four portfolio airlines have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the purchase by the four airlines of 430 additional A320neo Family aircraft. The aircraft will be allocated among the ultra low-cost airlines Frontier Airlines (United States), JetSMART (Chile), Volaris (Mexico) and Wizz Air (Hungary) upon the completion of final purchase agreements between Airbus and the four airlines.

The 430-aircraft commitment, comprised of 273 A320neos and 157 A321neos worth $49.5 billion at list prices, was announced at the Dubai Airshow by Bill Franke, Managing Partner of Indigo Partners, and John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers, Airbus Commercial Aircraft. When added to existing Airbus A320 Family orders, the new agreement will make Indigo Partners one of the largest customers by order number in the world for the Airbus single-aisle aircraft family. Airlines in the Indigo Partners family previously have placed orders for 427 A320 Family aircraft.

“This significant commitment for 430 additional aircraft underscores our optimistic view of the growth potential of our family of low-cost airlines, as well as our confidence in the A320neo Family as a platform for that growth,” said Bill Franke. “Our airlines know that a great aircraft coupled with a great business plan will create value for our customers. We look forward to bringing comfort and low fares to more passengers around the world as Wizz Air, Volaris, JetSMART and Frontier continue to expand.”

John Leahy said; “Indigo Partners have been a tremendous customer and supporter of the Airbus single-aisle fleet for many years. An order for 430 aircraft is remarkable, but it’s particularly gratifying to all of us at Airbus when it comes from a group of airline professionals who know our products as well as the folks at Indigo Partners do. We are proud to augment their airline fleets in Latin America, North America and Europe with the single-aisle aircraft that offers the lowest operating costs, longest range and most spacious cabin: the A320neo Family.”

Also present at the announcement were Enrique Beltranena, CEO of Volaris; Barry Biffle, CEO of Frontier Airlines; Estuardo Ortiz, CEO of JetSMART; and József Váradi, CEO of Wizz Air. They confirmed their firm’s individual aircraft orders as follows:

Wizz - 72 A320neo, 74 A321neo
Frontier - 100 A320neo, 34 A321neo
JetSMART - 56 A320neo, 14 A321neo
Volaris - 46 A320neo, 34 A321neo

Indigo Partners’ Bill Franke indicated that engine selections will be made and announced at a later date.

The A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies, including new generation engines and Sharklet wing-tip devices, which together will deliver 20 percent fuel savings by 2020. With more than 5,200 orders received from 95 customers since its launch in 2010, the A320neo Family has captured nearly 60 percent market share.

Indigo Partners LLC, based in Phoenix, Arizona, is a private equity fund focused on worldwide investments in air transportation.
It reads like a framework deal where the individual airlines have to firm up their parts individualy.

I would agree with that. Here is some more data and this is the largest single A321 Order of all time too is it not after Wizz ordered 110 of them a few years ago.

Wizz (72 A320neo, 74 A321neo)
Frontier (100 A320neo, 34 A321neo)
JetSMART (56 A320neo, 14 A321neo)
Volaris (46 A320neo, 34 A321neo)

Wizz now has 184 x A321neos on order

Indigo Partners is a American private equity company which (partly) owns the 4 airlines mentioned, it has no relation with the airline IndoGo.

It's not the first one.

This is the A321 conversion program by Precision Aircraft Solutions and ATSG
https://www.precisionaircraft.com/a321/


The PacAvi Group was the 1st company to come with a conversion program, launched in 2014. But it has become pretty quiet about this venture.

https://cargofacts.com/the-a320-freighters-are-coming/
http://pacavi.com/freighter_lite/


Another venture is the one by ST Aerospace / Elbe Flugzeugwerke which is backed by Airbus, they launched in 2015.

https://www.stengg.com/en/aerospace/...r-conversions/

Both of these 2 are working on a prototype. It's still unclear who will deliver the 1st flying prototype of a A320/A321 P2F.

BREAKING NEWS : A Qatar Airways A321 caught fire on the ground during maintenance



A Qatar Airways Airbus A321 (reg. A7-AIB) parked at a remote stand in Hamad International Airport (HIA) caught fire while under maintenance this morning, a statement from the airline said.

The fire inside the cabin was extinguished immediately and no injuries were reported.

According to JADEC, the fire is understood to have originated in IFE/Satcom antenna built inside the cabin rooftop.

Local authorities have initiated an investigation into the incident, the statement said.

The flight traffic at HIA was not affected.

The full statement from airlines follows:

“At 06:50am today a Qatar Airways Airbus A321 aircraft positioned at a remote stand experienced a fire whilst under maintenance at Hamad International Airport (HIA). The fire inside the cabin was promptly contained and extinguished. Whilst there was some damage to the aircraft there were no injuries. A full investigation is being conducted by the local authorities to establish the cause. Traffic at HIA was not affected and is running as normal.”

That is a writeoff.

I think the IFE and Comms Dome is Panasonic Avionics’ eXConnect gear and any advisories will apply to all Panasonic Avionics’ eXConnect users.

It is being reported that Delta Airlines will purchase over 100 A321 Neo’s. What is interesting is that (if all the public commitments are finalised) the A321 Neo will have sold more copies than the original A320.

I'm assuming this is targeted at replacement of the final MD80/90 machines, plus some legacy Northwest A320 machines ? And that Delta is still pursuing Boeing to continue with the 797 for their 757 replacements ?

I did note that there is no mention of a split order, A321neo and A321LR specifically. I assume that for now it is A321neo only. The 'options' might include some A321LR frames if taken up in time.

The 757 does a great job but something smaller is needed for Delta to provide year round services to destinations that are 757 Summer only routes in N Europe.

Separately, this is the first big P&W order in over 2 years and signals that the GTF engine is finally (at least) approaching maturity. They will be even happier than Airbus.

That fire wasn't extinguished immediately....not even close, unless that aircraft is wholly constructed with highly flammable parts.

Personally, I think Delta Airlines is buying the A321neo for a good reason: to replace the aging 757-200 fleet on US domestic flights.

To me it just seems freight conversions of narrow-body Airbuses never really will take off.

Some operators still opted for new P2F conversions of the 737 Classic (-300 and -400) this year ! Agreed, this time on later frames (mostly ones from 1997 and 1998). While actually now it's the time to start to convert early 737 NG frames ! Both Boeing with their own program (BCF) and IAI (Bedek) offer both -700 and -800 models, as drop-in for the -300 and -400.

Some of the older B757s with the airline have not been refurbished or enhanced (e.g. non-winglets, older interiors) that those may be viable candidates for retirement and A321 replacement. The ranges between the A321 and B757 are comparable to each other (unless we factor in ETOPS and other modifications that can allow the A321 to travel further, like the A321NEO LR).

I still think the new A321neo's in Delta service will replace many of the older Delta 757-200's used primarily in USA domestic service. The 130-strong (by 2019) 737-900ER fleet will likely be used to replace many MD-88 planes.
