Airbus has announced a huge order of nearly 300 aircraft for four Chinese airlines

European manufacturer Airbus has just announced a huge order for nearly three hundred aircraft for Chinese airlines.


In an official statement, the manufacturer said that an agreement has been signed with Air China, China Eastern, China Southern and Shenzhen Airlines, to purchase 292 aircraft of the A320 family, which includes the A319, A320 and A321. This is the first major purchase made by Chinese companies after the onset of the epidemic, whose first position was in the Asian country.

The number of units in each model is not detailed, nor how the division will be between the companies, but it is expected that all of the new variants, with the new engine, are already in operation at said companies.

Currently, the market for single-aisle commercial aircraft in China is dominated by Airbus, although Boeing has a larger presence due to a greater number of twin-aisle aircraft.

In contrast, there are 2,070 aircraft from the European manufacturer in the country, in addition to having a factory in Tianjin, where the A320 family aircraft are assembled and also has a finish line for the A330 family. Another Airbus presence is its helicopter division, with an assembly line for the H135 in Qingdao.
