Leahy..optimistic about announcing further orders for the A320neo model

Airbus says plans to lift A320 production still warranted

FARNBOROUGH, July 12, 2016

Airbus's plans to raise production of its top-selling A320 family of single-aisle jets are "still warranted", the European planemaker's sales chief said on Tuesday, amid aviation industry concerns about a faltering global economy.

Airbus plans to eventually lift production of A320 jets to 60 a month, from around 42 currently.

When asked whether Airbus would announce further orders for its A321neo model on the second day of the Farnborough Airshow in southern England, John Leahy replied: "Hope so."

He also said he was disappointed at the time it was taking to get US licences for Airbus's planned sale of jets to Iran. - Reuters
