News about the impending new deal with Lion Air.

Quote:
Airbus to sign mega A320 order from Asian carrier Lion Air
Posted: 18 March 2013 0551 hrs


PARIS: European aerospace giant Airbus will sign Monday what would mark one of its biggest orders ever from Indonesia's Lion Air for more than 200 A320 medium-haul jets, business daily Les Echos reported.

The deal is expected to be worth more than $20 billion (15.3 billion euros) with a standard A320 model priced at $91.5 million. Its newer and more fuel-efficient NEO plane has a price tag of more than $100 million.

French President Francois Hollande's office said that he would host the chief executive of Airbus to celebrate the signing of "a major industrial agreement," but both the plane maker and the French presidency declined further comment.

The government said the deal with the Asian budget airline will be signed as France's Industry Week kicks off, but declined to give more details on the nature of the agreement.

Monday's meeting between Hollande and Airbus CEO Fabrice Bregier will take place at 1000 GMT at the presidential palace.

The news comes just days after Airbus received an order worth as much as $15.5 billion from Turkish airlines for up to 117 planes.

That order also centred on Airbus's A320 medium-haul family.

Lion Air is Indonesia's largest privately-run airline and would be a new client for Airbus as it has previously been equipped almost exclusively by US rival Boeing.

In 2011, the Indonesian carrier signed a record $22.4 billion deal for 230 Boeing 737 airliners.

With some 240 million people, Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous nation and most far-flung archipelago with more than 17,000 islands scattered across 33 provinces.

Air travel has grown sharply in recent years with the emergence of budget carriers like Lion Air, as well as rising incomes thanks to steady economic growth.

As France battles with rising unemployment figures, Airbus is one of the few companies that continues to recruit heavily.

In January, Bregier said the company would hire 3,000 people worldwide in 2013.

Last year they just signed contract for 200 boeing jets presence by Obama in Indonesia.

Lion Air Orders More Than 200 Airbus Jets

In 2011, the Indonesian carrier signed a record $22.4 billion deal for 230 Boeing 737 airliners.

The Lion Air order marks at least the third attempt by Airbus to woo Lion Air, long seen as a fortress for Boeing.It is likely to throw the spotlight on an intense battle for market share between the largest planemakers.

It is also likely to add zest to a regional battle for supremacy between Lion Air and AirAsia, the low-cost carrier founded by Malaysian entrepreneur Tony Fernandes.

Lion Air is about to start up a domestic Malaysian rival to AirAsia, which has long been exclusively an Airbus operator. Some industry watchers have warned of a potential price war.

The airlines are respectively among the top buyers of Boeing and Airbus jets. Airlines rarely switch suppliers because of re-training costs and the burden of keeping extra spares, but the practice of "flipping" has grown as market share battles raged.


As France battles with rising unemployment figures, Airbus is one of the few companies that continues to recruit heavily. In January, Bregier said the company would hire 3,000 people worldwide in 2013.

Boeing outsold Airbus in 2012 for the first time in six years and remains ahead this year, according to monthly data.

With some 240 million people, Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous nation and most far-flung archipelago with more than 17,000 islands scattered across 33 provinces.

Air travel has grown sharply in recent years with the emergence of budget carriers like Lion Air, as well as rising incomes thanks to steady economic growth.

Airbus, Lion set to announce order for 200 narrow-body aircrafts

Quote:
European airframer giant Airbus and Indonesian budget carrier Lion Air are set to announce an order of 200 narrow-body aircraft A320 aircraft in Paris, France, later in the day, French newspaper Les Echos reported early on Monday.

It was reported that French President Francois Hollande will oversee the announcement ceremony of which details have yet to be revealed.

The huge order, potentially worth almost US$20 billion, marks a major shift in Lion’s procurement strategy, which until recently only included both narrow-body and wide-body Boeing aircraft.

In its inventory, the low-cost carrier (LCC) has a Boeing 737 classic series, 737-800 and 737-900ER narrow-body aircraft. Lion also operates two Boeing 747-400 wide-body aircraft for its Saudi Arabia routes. Lion has also ordered a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Same news from another source.

Airbus wins record US$23.8b order from Indonesian carrier
Posted: 18 March 2013 1844 hrs


PARIS : Europe's Airbus has won a record order worth 18.4 billion euros ($23.8 billion) from Indonesia's Lion Air for 234 medium-haul A320 jets, the French presidency announced Monday.

Calling it the "biggest contract for civilian planes for Airbus," the Elysee said it would "create 5,000 jobs in France over the next 10 years".

The announcement came after a meeting between French President Francois Hollande and Airbus head Fabrice Bregier.

The deal comes after the Indonesian carrier astounded the industry with a US$22.4 billion agreement for 230 Boeing 737 airliners, inked in 2011 as a visiting US President Barack Obama looked on.

The impressive orders are in sharp contrast with the size of the company, which is banned from US and EU skies over safety fears.

Founded in 1999 by brothers Kusnan and Rusdi Kirana, who are ranked the 33rd richest Indonesians with collective wealth of US$900 million, Lion Air is the first private airline in Indonesia, a sprawling archipelago nation.

Currently it operates a relatively modest 92 planes - all Boeings except for one McDonnell Douglas - which makes it number nine among regional carriers in terms of fleet size.

Its 72 destinations are mostly in Indonesia, and the furthest it flies is to Saudi Arabia - a route mostly packed with domestic workers and construction labourers.

Nevertheless, the company has huge ambitions, and is betting big on the formidable expansion of air transport in Indonesia, which is experiencing passenger growth of around 20 percent every year.

With 240 million people, Indonesia is the world's fourth most populous nation, and embraces more than 17,000 islands scattered across 33 provinces.

Annual economic growth exceeds 6.0 percent and there is a burgeoning middle class which is keen to abandon travel by bus, ferry and train and instead take to the skies for holidays and family visits.

Despite its regulatory woes, Lion Air is intent on spreading its wings internationally, and is expected this year to launch its long-haul arm, Batik Air, with six Boeing 737s and five Boeing B787 Dreamliners.

Last September it also announced the launch of another offshoot, Malindo Airways, which will begin regional operations in May from Malaysia, the home turf of Lion Air's main rival, AirAsia.

The vast potential of Indonesia's aviation market, and the scope for offshoot carriers, supports the scale of Lion Air's orders, said Brendan Sobie from the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation in Singapore.

"They see an increase in demand that is brought on by the conditions in the home market. If you look at the projections for growth in Indonesia, assuming that Lion maintains its current market share and leading position, they are going to need a few hundred more aircraft just to keep that position," he said.

"They also have an ambition to play more in international markets and to open up affiliates in other countries."

Observers said that Lion Air wants to replicate the success of AirAsia, the region's low-cost pioneer which has flourished from its Kuala Lumpur base under the charismatic leadership of founder Tony Fernandes.

"I think Lion Air wants to show that it can beat Tony Fernandes," said Dudi Sudibyo, an expert from aviation magazine Angkasa.

"But the questions now are - who will fly those planes, where will the planes be parked, and how do they finance this?" he said, adding that the Airbus deal would likely be funded by a consortium.

With both mega-purchases in place, Lion Air would boast more than 600 aircraft by 2025, making it among the top-ten of the world's biggest airlines in terms of fleet size.

In 2007, Lion was among a number of Indonesian airlines banned by the EU for lax safety standards.

Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia and several other firms were taken off the blacklist in July 2009, but Lion Air is still on it.

Under present Federal Aviation Administration rules it would not normally be allowed to begin services to the US as the FAA classifies Indonesia as not meeting minimum air safety oversight requirements.

The sharklets add more punch to this beauty, uh before any Boeing lover tries to make an statement that Airbus follows Boeing with the winglets thing, Tupolev did it first.

You are referring to Tu-204?

The real question is why did Airbus wait so long, up to the point where Boeing has already come up with the next generation wing tips. (Although that one can also be considered a bigger version of the MD-11 wingtips)

Whoa, 234 for Lion Air?! I thought it will mainly operate B737-900ERs? That's truly crazy but splendid! Looks like it will become a serious competitor to AirAsia indeed in terms of A320 aircraft!

On the contrary, more than 180 orders for Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines combined... I suspect that both airlines are going to expand their networks aggressively once again. Great work!

We are not even out of the first quarter of the year! It's going to be a great year for the A320 program. Too bad Boeing is missing out on all the good orders!

Enough is enough. How is Lion Air going to support a brand new fleet of 400+ airplanes. Are they going to follow in AirAsia's foot steps and open new bases through out Central Asia? Does anyone know what Lion Air's goals are?

You mean Southeast Asia… Lion Air is a low-cost Indonesian airline, and I know it operates B737-900ERs and a handful of B747-400s. But with a massive order of A320s, it would truly signal a heavyweight competition versus the likes of AirAsia and Cebu Pacific coming soon.
