The second most important airshow of the year, alongside Paris Airshow (which took place in June), closed its doors on November 21st. Here are Airbus’ most important announcements from DAS19. Just like in the previous years, Aeronews attended both airshows.
As expected, Emirates made headlines on the second day when it announced a firm order for 50 Airbus A350-900s worth 16 billions dollars (list prices). Deliveries will start in 2023 and continue until 2028. Airbus received an order for 120 aircraft from Air Arabia, including A321XLR.
On the airshow’s 3rd day, easyJet ordered 12 more A320neos, Air Senegal signed a Memorandum of Understanding for eight A220-300 and flynas firmed up an order for 10 Airbus A321XLR. Also, GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) ordered 12 A330neo and 20 A321XLR.
It has been a great #DubaiAirshow – from our exhibit stand to the aircraft display, and in the skies above.
