@AerCapNV We’re excited to see MSN 10473 on the assembly line in Mobile, Alabama, AerCap’s first @Airbus #A320neo to be built at this facility. The aircraft will go on operating lease to @SpiritAirlines. @AirbusInTheUS #WeAreAerCap #AirbusA320 #AVGeek #AircraftLeasing #AviationFinance.
@Airbus We wrapped up March 2021 with 28 new orders including 20 for the #A220-300. 72 aircraft were also delivered last month to 34 customers (four A220, 60 #A320 Family and eight #A350) bringing the total deliveries to 125 in Q1-2021.
@A350_Production We are hearing reports coming out of Brazil that @LATAM_BRA will retire its entire #A350 fleet, just over 5 years after taking delivery of their first aircraft.
@jonostrower Enormous win for Boeing & GE as Southwest sticks with the 737, confirming @theaircurrent’s reporting & buying 100 more 737 Max aircraft, with 155 options. With conversions, the airline now has 200 150-seat 737 Max 7s on order. It’s been an incredible saga to get to this point.
@juhahelsinki We at @VirginAtlantic strongly believe that we have safe, data driven framework mechanism outlined to reopen one of world’s biggest air travel corridors between US and UK. @BritAmBusiness in the forefront of that aligned support #cooperation #restart.
