  • Airbus NEO Deals Total Passes 500
    Posted by Robert Wall 5:21 PM on Jun 20, 2011

    At the outset of the year Airbus had set a target for its A320NEO (new engine option) commitments to reach around 500 after the Paris air show. In that case, the company can save some money and close down its chalet today.

    The deals announced today at Paris, from SAS, GECAS, and Air Lease Corp., bring the company far above that total. Its enough to make Airbus COO for customers, John Leahy, note that production slot availability is getting tight for NEOs in the near term -- most of the deals announced at Le Bourget so far are for delivery in the 2016-2019 timeframe. Slot availability will get even tighter in the next few days.

    Here is the current line up of deals (not all are firm and some A320NEOs -- such as SAS's -- may end up being other models):
