International Airlines Group (IAG) has signed a firm order for 31 Airbus aircraft – eight A350-900s, three A330-200s and 20 A320neos.
The A350s and A330s are slated for Iberia’s fleet modernization and to open new long-haul routes, and the A320neos will be allocated to the group’s airlines for fleet replacement, according to Airbus.
Including its new order for 31 aircraft, IAG and its airlines have ordered a total of nearly 450 aircraft from Airbus.
Together, IAG’s airlines British Airways, Iberia and Vueling operate nearly every aircraft type in Airbus’ product range, from the A318 to the A380.
Airbus has now won firm orders for more than 780 A350 XWB widebodies and has delivered five.
To date the Airbus A330 family has won firm orders for more than 1,500 aircraft, and Airbus has delivered more than 1,200 to some 110 operators worldwide.
Meanwhile, the A320 family – including the new-generation A320neo family – has won firm orders for more than 11,800 aircraft.
Airbus has delivered more than 6,600 A320-family jets, to more than 300 operators worldwide.
