Airbus to supply Air New Zealand with new flying fleet

Airbus has signed a deal to supply Air New Zealand with 14 new jets.

The deal, worth about £900m, includes 10 A320neo, one A320 and three A321 aircraft, the airline’s chief Christopher Luxon said at an industry conference in Doha.

However bulk orders for airliners often come with a significant discount.

The majority of the planes will be delivered between 2017 and 2019.

Reuters news agency recently also reported Airbus was considering revamping its A330 jet, which is now 30 years old. The news agency reported Airbus sales head John Leahy saying: “We’re studying it very carefully, watch this space.”
