Japan Airlines Signs Airbus Deal

 

The Japanese carrier (JAL) has signed a purchase agreement for 31 A350 XWBs valued at $9.5 billion list price.
The order consist of 18 A350-900s and 13 A350-1000s, plus options for a further 25 aircraft. This is JAL’s first ever order for Airbus aircraft. *

* Before the merger by Japan Airlines and Japan Air Systems (JAS), JAS ordered Airbus aircraft.

JAL and Airbus aim for entry into service from 2019, with the airline’s A350 XWBs gradually replacing the airlines ageing fleet over a six year period.

To date, the A350 XWB MSN1 has completed around 300 flight test hours out of the campaign’s total 2,500 hours which are to be achieved by five flight test A350’s over the next 12 months. Entry into commercial service of the A350-900 is scheduled for the second half of 2014.
