Encomendas de aviões no Salão Aeronáutico de Paris
June 21, 2019 -- A Airbus terminou o Salão Aeronáutico de Paris com negócios para
363 aviões, no valor de cerca de $35.000 milhões a preços tabelados,
incluindo 206 encomendas do novo A321XLR de carlinga estreita.
Speaking at a final press conference, Airbus sales chief Christian Scherer vowed to challenge a surprise order for 200 Boeing 737 Max aircraft by its chief U.S. rival.
Scherer said that Airbus never received a request for proposals from IAG, the owner of British Airways, a process that formally launches bidding for most major aircraft contracts.
IAG is currently an Airbus-only narrow-body customer and has said it plans to use the Max planes -- now grounded following two fatal crashes -- for its discount and leisure divisions, including British Airways, Vueling and Level.
