Royal Jordanian negotiating for 12 787s through direct purchase and lease contracts

Royal Jordanian's President and CEO, Eng. Samer A. Majali, said that the strategic decision to purchase Boeing's revolutionary twin-aisle jet positions the airline to achieve its plans for continued growth and increased profitability.

Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Royal Jordanian today announced an order for Boeing's highly sought-after 787 Dreamliner, confirming two unidentified customer purchases previously listed on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website.

The announcement was made at the World Economic Forum, an event sanctioned by the Jordanian royal family and held at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center on Jordan's Dead Sea. Royal Jordanian is the first Middle East airline to announce an order for Boeing's 787, the fastest-selling new commercial airplane ever built. Royal Jordanian plans to confirm the purchase of its two outstanding options before the end of the year. The airline also intends to take an additional eight Boeing 787s on lease. The first aircraft will join the fleet in 2010.

'Today marks a milestone in Royal Jordanian's proud history,' Majali said. 'Looking to our plans for future growth, we see the superior economics and unique passenger comfort features of the 787 bringing even greater recognition to Royal Jordanian as we fulfill our commitment to provide world-class service to our passengers.'

Royal Jordanian was created in 1963 by a Royal Decree issued by His Majesty the late King Hussein, who was also known to be an excellent pilot. In 2006, Royal Jordanian received Air Transport World's Phoenix award in recognition of the airline having gone through a major transformation of its strategy and operations, resulting in consecutive years of profitable growth. Royal Jordanian also received a merit award from The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) for 2006 Airline Turnaround of the Year.

Beginning April 1, Royal Jordanian became a member of the oneworld™ airline alliance, offering even more extensive connectivity and flight options for its passengers traveling globally. Royal Jordanian continues to experience successive annual growth, with passenger loads showing a 20% increase from 2006.

'Royal Jordanian's distinguished history and recognized success over the last three years is admirable,' said Lee Monson, Boeing Commercial Airplane's vice president of sales for the Middle East & Africa. 'It's very satisfying for Boeing to see such a well-respected airline choosing the 787 Dreamliner as the core airplane for its international long-haul service.'

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, scheduled for entry into service in 2008, provides passengers with a better flying experience, and operators with a more efficient commercial jetliner.

With the 787 Dreamliner, Boeing continues its leadership and innovation with a mostly composite airplane that uses significantly less fuel per passenger than similarly sized airplanes. The 787 is designed for the environment with lower carbon emissions and quieter takeoffs and landings. Inside the airplane, passengers will find cleaner air, bigger windows, more stowage space and improved lighting.

Since the 787 launch in April 2004, 44 customers worldwide have logged 568 orders, making the Dreamliner the most successful commercial airplane launch in history.

Present at the press conference were the Jordanian Minister of Transport, the American Ambassador in Amman, RJ's Chairman of the Board of Directors and a number of officials.

Qatar Airways has signed a contract for the purchase of 80 of the all-new Airbus A350 XWB aircraft and also placed an order for a further three A380s, bringing their total order for the type to five.


Qatar Airways also ordered 3 A32S aircraft.

Qatar Airways seals $17bn Airbus order

doha • Qatar Airways yesterday confirmed a $16bn order for 80 Airbus A350s making the airline the single largest customer of the European aircraft manufacturer’s newest commercial jet.

The airline has also increased its orders for the widebody Airbus A380s from two to five aircraft, a release said. A separate agreement for three additional A380s worth almost $1bn in total was also announced.

At a press conference held on the opening day of the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget yesterday, Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Akbar Al Baker confirmed the orders in the presence of Airbus President Louis Gallois.

The A350 deal replaces original plans announced two years ago by Qatar Airways to purchase 60 A350s. The airline has now opted for the redesigned Extra Widebody (XWB) version of the A350 in three different variants. Qatar Airways’ commitment announced yesterday is for 20 Airbus A350-800s, 40 A350-900s and 20 A350-1000s, the latter being a stretch version of the new aircraft. Qatar Airways is the launch customer of the A350-1000XWB variant.

The A350-XWB, depending upon variant, will have between 260 and 350 seats in Qatar Airways’ typical two-class configuration and will be used to operate on key routes across the airline’s international network covering Europe, Africa, Far East and the Indian subcontinent.

Deliveries are set to begin in August 2013 and will gradually replace the Airbus A330s, which are currently the backbone of Qatar Airways’ fleet. Al Baker said the announcement finally ended months of protracted negotiations with Airbus over the design of the A350-XWB. “This deal has been a long time coming but clearly demonstrates Qatar Airways’ commitment to this new generation aircraft,” he said, speaking at a press conference at Le Bourget.

“This large A350-XWB order, comprising all three variants, underlines the confidence that Qatar Airways has in Airbus’ capability to produce an outstanding, new generation twin-engine widebody aircraft for entry into service from 2013.

Rolls-Royce, meanwhile, announced the largest-ever firm engine order for its civil aerospace business in an order with Qatar Airways worth $5.6bn at list prices, which includes a TotalCare long-term services agreement. The order is for Trent XWB engines to power the new fleet of 80 Airbus A350XWB twinjets.

Qatar Airways has, and will continue to, work with Airbus and Rolls-Royce in the definition and optimisation of an outstanding family of aircraft.“

Qatar Airways is the largest Airbus operator in the Middle East, currently flying 58 all-Airbus aircraft, including the A319s, A320s, A321s, A330s and A340s. Qatar Airways is also a launch customer of the with five now on order for deliveries beginning in 2010.

Etihad Airways orders 12 wide-body Airbus aircraft

Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates has signed a firm contract for the purchase of 12 Airbus wide-body aircraft including the newest model in its freighter product range, the A330-200F. The order is for five A330-200s, four A340-600s and three A330-200Fs.

The agreement was signed by James Hogan, Etihad Chief Executive and Louis Gallois, Airbus President and CEO, at a ceremony at the 47th International Paris Air show at Le Bourget.



“This aircraft order will enable Etihad to continue its impressive route network growth which now stands at 43 global destinations.

“Etihad is one of the world’s dynamic airlines and we’re delighted we are continuing to build on our partnership. I am particularly proud about Etihad’s faith in our A340 aircraft which really do offer outstanding performance and unparalleled levels passenger comfort. I am also delighted Etihad have chosen the A330 which is simply the leading aircraft type in this sector,” said Louis Gallois, Airbus President and CEO.



The A330 wide-body aircraft is the unquestioned leader in its class with a commanding market share and a continually expanding operator base. It has excellent flexibility for a wide range of route structures, providing the operator with proven low operating cost per seat as well as the widest and most comfortable cabin in its category.



The A330-200F freighter can carry 64 metric tonnes over 4,000 nautical miles/7,400 kilometres or 69 metric tonnes up to 3,200 nautical miles/5,930 kilometres. With unrivalled volume and range capacity in its class and flexibility to carry a wide variety of pallet and container sizes for maximum interlining capability, the A330-200F offers new and established cargo operators to offer new routes with the most modern and economically efficient freighter aircraft.



The A340-600 is the largest member of Airbus’ A330/A340 Family, and is the most modern aircraft in the 250-375-seater segment flying today. With four engines, the A340 offers unrivalled operational economics and flexibility on ultra-long-haul non-stop routes over remote oceans and terrains such as mountain ranges and the Polar Regions. Airbus is an EADS company.

By the way, I recently saw a nice cartoon on The Herald Tribune, it went something like this:

You see a Boeing 787 dreamliner and next to it a sign that says:

"Save!
Buy Boeing!"

And then you see an Airbus 350XWB with a sign that says:

"Buy!
Save Airbus!"
