Airbus is expanding its production capacity for the A321XLR in Hamburg, with the first delivery in 2023.


Airbus orderbook changes for January 2020 include: five A320s transferred from CALC to Viva Air Colombia; Aviation Capital Group converted two A320neos to A321neos; CALC converted 15 A320neos to A321neos; Wizz Air converted five A320neos to A321neos; China Eastern and Juneyao Airlines ordered one and two A320neos; Avianca cancelled five A321neos, converted 21 A321neos to A320neos of which 15 were cancelled.

Jazeera Airways is seeking to lease about a dozen A320neos to meet its fleet requirements for the next two years, putting earlier aircraft order plans on hold, to capitalize on attractive lease rates.

KLM is mulling the A321neo as part of its future modernization of the medium-haul fleet.

VivaAerobus took delivery of an A320neo, the last of two neos on lease from CDB Aviation, completing the transaction aimed to advance the carrier’s fleet expansion.

Air Canada is reportedly close to ordering 25 aircraft from Airbus, a mix of A321XLR and A330neo. The XLR order would replace the 11 B737 MAX 9s on order. Air Canada has decided to limit the number of MAX incorporated in its fleet to 50.

Safran is in talks with Airbus over plans to increase the production of its A320neo in 2022-23, as the B737 MAX remains grounded.

Spirit AeroSystems has opened a new composite manufacturing facility at its site in Prestwick, Scotland, which brings new work to the site in the form of the A320 family spoiler.

Airbus is planning to develop a successor for the highly succesful A320 family. The first prototype could be revealed as soon as 2026, with deliveries starting in 2030. Also, Airbus wants to make aircraft that are powered by hydrogen fuel and are thus completely powered by clean energy. This should be as from 2035, ten years earlier than planned before.
Furthermore, Airbus will develop for the first time in it's history a regional aircraft. This should be revealed approximately the same time as the successor for the A320, between 2026 and 2028!
