It has been revealed by Airbus that Aer Lingus has ordered an additional two A320neo aircraft, based on data from their November orders & deliveries.
The Irish carrier has been in the process of fleet renewal and growth over the last 12 months, with this supplemental order being part of that.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Aer Lingus Orders Two Airbus A320neo Aircraft…
At this stage, it is unclear when deliveries of these types will occur for the Aer Lingus aircraft.
This represents another order under the IAG umbrella, following British Airways’ incremental order for two Airbus A320neo & A321neo aircraft.
For November 2023, the European planemaker scored 113 gross orders, which consists of the following:
- 30 A220-300s for airBaltic (Dubai Airshow).
- 60 A320neos for SMBC Aviation.
- 15 A350-900s for Emirates (Dubai Airshow).
- 2 A320neo & 2 A321neo for British Airways.
- 2 A320neos for Aer Lingus.
- 1 A330-900neo for Air Lease Corporation.
- 1 A350-900 for Air Mauritius.
For net orders, there was 52 cancellations, which means that year to date, Airbus has secured a total of 1,395 orders.
Of the A320neo variant, Aer Lingus has four of them already, with an average age of 1.1 years, as per data from Planespotters.net.
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on whether we will see anymore incremental orders from the Irish carrier, or whether this will be it for the time being.
But for now, all eyes will be on Airbus to see how they finish off the year with net orders, as well as whether there will be any last-minute blockbuster deals to close the year off.
