Daily Newsletter | June 17, 2019
It‘s official: Airbus has launched the longest-range narrow-body jetliner, the A321XLR, on the first day of the Paris Air Show 2019, Monday, June 17. While the launch itself comes as no surprise, the European plane maker is now set to break records at the airshow in a major blow to its U.S. rival Boeing when it comes to mid-market aircraft.
Shortly after Airbus officially launched its A321XLR, Kevin McAllister, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said there would be no announcement about the Boeing “797” New Mid-Market Airplane (NMA) during Paris Air Show.
Half a day after the opening of the Paris Air Show, Airbus already accumulates three orders for its aircraft, including the launch customer for its newly-launched A321XLR, the long-range version of its best-selling A321neo.
United Airlines has signed a deal with Brazil’s Embraer at the Paris Air Show on June 17, 2019, for a total of 39 E-Jets that will go to its regional branch, United Express.
