Airbus revealed orders for 10 more A350-900 in its latest figures, intended for two customers who remain anonymous. 2023 will therefore be a good year for the European aircraft manufacturer with already more than 1100 devices orders.

Four A350-900s were ordered on July 11 and six more on July 31. It should also be noted that Airbus’ figures for the month show that it also subtracted three A350-900s from its total, all of which were similarly allocated to unidentified customers. The European aircraft manufacturer has registered a single A350-900 for Iberiabringing the total direct commitment of the Spanish operator to 21 aircraft.

As already indicated in our columns, the single-aisle activity of Airbus in July remained strong with 36 planes reserved for the Turkish airline Pegasus Airlines and the inclusion of the historical command from Icelandair for 13 A321neos. Icelandair, which was an all-Boeing operator before this last Airbus contract (with 757, 767 and 737 MAX planes), has therefore made a historic shift for its fleet.

And the month of August is already looking good for Airbus thanks mainly to the order for Wizz Air for 75 additional Airbus A321neos.

Airbus’ overall net orders for the year reached 1,101 aircraft, including more than 950 from the A320neo family.
