Airbus ready to phase out A380 if fails to win Emirates deal: sources

Quote
Airbus is drawing up contingency plans to phase out production of the world’s largest jetliner, the A380 superjumbo, if it fails to win a key order from Dubai’s Emirates, three people familiar with the matter said.

“If there is no Emirates deal, Airbus will start the process of ending A380 production,” a person briefed on the plans said. A supplier added such a move was logical due to weak demand.

Airbus and Emirates declined to comment. Airbus also declined to say how many people work on the project.

Any shutdown is expected to be gradual, allowing Airbus to produce orders it has in hand, mainly from Emirates.

It has enough orders to last until early next decade at current production rates, according to a Reuters analysis.

The A380 was developed at a cost of 11 billion euros to carry some 500 people and challenge the reign of the Boeing 747.

But demand for these four-engined goliaths has fallen as airlines choose smaller twin-engined models, which are easier to fill and cheaper to maintain.

Emirates, however, has been a strong believer in the A380 and is easily the largest customer with total orders of 142 aircraft, of which it has taken just over 100.

Talks between Airbus and Emirates over a new order for 36 superjumbos worth $16 billion broke down at the Dubai Airshow last month. Negotiations are said to have resumed, but there are no visible signs that a deal is imminent.

Although airlines such as British Airways have expressed interest in the A380, Airbus is reluctant to keep factories open without the certainty that a bulk Emirates order would provide.

Emirates, for its part, wants a guarantee that Airbus will keep production going for a decade to protect its investment.

There are also potential hurdles to a deal over engine choices and after-sales support.

SAFETY NET
Yet if talks succeed, European sources say there is a glimmer of hope for the double-deck jet, which Airbus says will become more popular with airlines due to congestion.

Airbus hopes to use an Emirates order to stabilise output and establish a safety net from which to attract A380 sales to other carriers, but has ruled out trying to do this the other way round, industry sources said.

As of the end of November, Airbus had won orders for 317 A380s and delivered 221, leaving 96 unfilled orders.

But based on airlines’ intentions or finances, 47 of those are unlikely to be delivered, according to industry sources, which halves the number of jets in play.

Airbus needs to sell at least another 30 to keep lines open for 10 years and possibly more to justify the price concessions likely to be demanded by any new buyers.

To bridge the gap, Airbus plans to cut output to six a year beyond 2019, from 12 in 2018 and 8 in 2019, even if it means producing at a loss, Reuters recently reported.

Chief Operating Officer Fabrice Bregier confirmed this month Airbus was looking at cutting output to 6-7 a year.

If Airbus does decide to wind down production, some believe Emirates will ask Airbus to deliver the remaining 41 it has on order and then keep most A380s in service as long as possible.

Even so, some A380s are likely to be heading for scrap.

Airbus încheie anul cu comenzi în valoare de 60 de miliarde de dolari

Constructorul aeronautic european Airbus a încheiat anul 2017 cu noi comenzi în valoare de 60 de miliarde de dolari pentru cel mai bine vândut avion al său, Airbus A320, graţie unor noi contracte pentru 100 de aparate şi confirmării unui uriaş contract dezvăluit luna trecută, informează The Telegraph.

Vineri, compania de leasing aerian China Aircraft Leasing Group Holdings a anunţat că a încheiat un acord pentru a achiziţiona 50 de aparate A320neo, cu o valoare de catalog de 5,42 miliarde de dolari (4,5 miliarde de euro). Cu o zi înainte, constructorul de avioane cu sediul la Toulouse (Franţa) a informat că şi compania olandeză de leasing aerian AerCap a comandat un număr de 50 de aparate A320neo.

De asemenea, joi, Airbus a finalizat o comandă în valoare de 49,5 miliarde de dolari anunţată anterior pentru 430 de avioane A320neo cu firma de private equity Indigo Partners. Avioanele vor merge la cele patru companii aeriene low cost controlate de Indigo Partners, respectiv Frontier Airlines (SUA), JetSMART (Chile), Volaris (Mexic) şi Wizz Air (Ungaria). Confirmarea acestei comenzi anunţată prima dată la salonul aeronautic de la Dubai din noiembrie este o veste bună pentru carnetul de comenzi al Airbus, care până acum era relativ modest comparativ cu cel al rivalului american Boeing.
