Question: has Azerbaijan Airlines considered using any of its A340s to London yet, if not to new destinations out of Baku?

Maybe after they actually take delivery of their 1st 787, that should happen any day now.

Ah yes. And, if that happens, I wonder if the Dreamliner will also be used on its Baku-New York/JFK service (now using an A340-500)... i mean, with the delivery of the B787 to the airline, it has another long-haul aircraft to use for its long-haul services...

CIT firms up order for 15 A330neo and five A321ceo aircraft



Strong momentum growing for Airbus’ new A330neo Widebody

3 December 2014

CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT), a global leader in transportation finance has firmed up its order for 15 A330-900neo aircraft and five A321ceo aircraft. CIT became one of the launch customers of the A330neo after signing its initial agreement in July 2014, at the Farnborough International Airshow.

“Given our long-term leadership on the A330 program, we are proud to be one of the first customers to sign a purchase agreement for the all-new A330neo aircraft,” said Jeff Knittel, President of CIT Transportation & International Finance. “These agreements will enable us to provide fuel efficient solutions to our customers as CIT continues to be a leader in providing early access to the most sought after aircraft for our customers.”

“When a leading lessor, CIT, adds the A330neo to its already extensive Airbus widebody portfolio of A330ceo’s and A350-900s, we take that as clear confirmation of our widebody family strategy fully meeting the requirements and expectations of the market,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “CIT’s repeat order for A321ceo’s, is further evidence of the continuing high value placed by the market on this largest member of our popular A320 Family, which offers the best seat-mile costs of any single-aisle aircraft and the lowest fuel burn, emissions and noise footprint in its class.”

AirAsia X places firm order for 55 A330neo

Carrier to benefit from even lower operating costs for long haul services
15 DECEMBER 2014 PRESS RELEASE
AirAsia X, the long haul affiliate of Asia’s largest low cost airline, has placed a firm order with Airbus for 55 A330neo aircraft. This is the largest single order to date for the best-selling A330 Family and reaffirms AirAsia X’s position as the biggest A330 airline customer worldwide, having now ordered a total of 91 aircraft. The announcement covers the firming up of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 50 A330neo signed during the Farnborough Air Show in July 2014, plus an additional five aircraft. Deliveries of the newly-ordered aircraft will begin in 2018.
“This latest deal with Airbus will enable AirAsia X to consolidate its growth rate in 2015-2017 before ramping up deliveries from 2018 onwards.” said Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Co-Founder and Director of AirAsia X. “The A330 has proven itself to be exactly the right aircraft for our business model, combining low operating costs, long range flying capability and high levels of comfort. We are extremely excited about the even greater levels of efficiency that will come with the A330neo, which will play a key role in enabling AirAsia X to maintain its position as the long haul low cost leader.”
“This order from AirAsia X is a major endorsement of the A330neo as the most cost-efficient aircraft in its size category,” said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers, Airbus. “With the A330neo in its fleet, AirAsia X will benefit from even lower operating costs as it expands it network and reach, enabling more people to fly further more often than ever before. We look forward to AirAsia X becoming one of the first operators of the latest version of the highly successful A330.”
Building on the proven economics, versatility and reliability of the A330ceo, the A330neo will incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. These advances will make the aircraft the most cost-efficient in its size category, with a reduction in fuel consumption of 14% per seat, an increase in non-stop flying range of up to 400 nautical miles and the lowest possible maintenance costs.

There are now 101 firm orders for the A330neo family.
And that´s only after five months since the program launch and one and a half year before the first flight.

Another success for the A330 MRTT.
Three European NATO members wil buy four tankers and share them.

European Partners Opt for Airbus Military Tanker
Airbus Beats Out Boeing for Contract to Modify Its A330 MRTTs as Refueling Jets

By Robert Wall
Dec. 19, 2014

Airbus Group NV beat out Boeing Co. to win a proposed deal supplying new airborne refueling jets for three European countries, marking a breakthrough in regional defense cooperation.



The European Defense Agency said the Netherlands, Norway and Poland plan to buy and share four modified Airbus A330 MRTT jets to fuel their military aircraft, with the first planes available in 2019.

The fierce rivalry between Airbus and Boeing in the commercial-jet sector has spilled into the military-tanker market, intensified by a long-running spat over supplying planes for the Pentagon that was eventually won by the U.S. aerospace giant.

Airbus leads Boeing in foreign orders for its tanker, having been selected by Australia, the U.K., United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, India and Qatar. Last month, it also won a 12-jet order from France.

Boeing is looking for export customers for the new tanker derived from its 767 jetliner that is due to be delivered to the U.S. Air Force from 2016, with South Korea and Japan viewed as potential buyers. The prototype of the KC-46 jet is due to make its first flight next weekend—six months behind schedule—and is also running over budget.

The jet-sharing deal won by Airbus is significant as European defense officials have identified a shortage of aerial refueling capacity. Western airstrikes against Libya in 2011 highlighted a shortfall in European airborne tanker planes needed to extend the range of shorter-range fighter jets. European militaries had to heavily rely on U.S. refueling planes.

Avolon firms up order for 15 A330neo aircraft



Momentum continues to build for new Airbus Widebody aircraft

23 December 2014 Press Release

Avolon, the Dublin-based, global aircraft leasing firm, has firmed up its contract for 15 A330neo aircraft. Avolon became one of the launch customers of the A330neo after signing its initial commitment in July 2014 at the Farnborough International Airshow.

“The A330neo is a sound investment for lessors, who like Avolon are focused on offering their customers the most modern, economic and comfortable aircraft,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “The A330neo with its highly competitive economics, in addition to the already flawless credentials of today’s A330, is going to be a real hit with operators around the world in the medium range segment.”

The A330-800neo and the A330-900neo are two new members of the Airbus Widebody Family launched in July 2014 with first deliveries scheduled to start in Q4 2017. The A330neo incorporates latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. Benefitting from the excellent economics, versatility and high reliability of the A330, the A330neo reduces fuel consumption by 14% per seat, making it the most cost efficient, medium range Widebody aircraft on the market. In addition to greater fuel savings, A330neo operators will also benefit from a range increase of up to 400 nautical miles and all the operational commonality advantages of the Airbus Family.
