AirAsia Berhad orders 14 A320CEOs


To meet the robust demand in the Philippines, Indonesia and India, budget carrier AirAsia is ordering 14 more Airbus 320CEO as announced in the Paris Air Show last Thursday (22 June).

The deal is valued at around $1.4 billion at current list prices, although airlines usually get discounts from manufacturers. The 14 additional A320ceos will bring the total number of aircraft from the A320 family ordered by AirAsia to 592. AirAsia continues to be the largest airline customer for the Airbus single aisle product line.

Philippines AirAsia chief executive officer Dexter M. Comendador said in an interview that the carrier is looking to end 2017 with 19 planes, as it plans to boost capacity and expand routes. At present, Philippines AirAsia has 16 planes.
