Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 10 November 2008

Grupo Marsans, one of the largest tourism and transport groups in Europe, has signed a firm order with Airbus for the purchase of 61 Airbus aircraft including four A380s, ten A350-900s, five A330-200s and 42 A320 family aircraft (of which 12 A319s, 25 A320s and five A321s).

These aircraft will be operated by Grupo Marsans' subsidiary or related airlines. This new order adds to the previous order for 12 A330-200s and will bring Grupo Marsans' total orders with Airbus to 73 aircraft.

Gonzalo Pascual, President of Grupo Marsans, said, "This important order allows Grupo Marsans to put into action its mid and long term development plan, to enhance our position on the short and long haul sector by incorporating the most efficient aircraft available on the market today and tomorrow. In addition to the overall fleet enhancement this represents, we are particularly proud that, with the A380, we will become the first A380 customer and operator in Spain and Latin America."

"This order, which basically covers all our product range, including the most recent ones such as the A380 and A350, represents a major vote of  confidence. It will allow Grupo Marsans to benefit from the operational commonality of the Airbus product range in the best way possible," added John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers. "With this purchase, Grupo Marsans, who control various airlines in Europe and Latin America, will have the most efficient and modern aircraft fleet available to further strengthen and develop their operations both within Spain, regionally and internationally."

The A380 is already setting new standards for air transport and the environment. In addition to offering improved levels of passenger comfort, space and quietness in the cabin, the A380 has lower levels of operating costs and better fuel efficiency, consuming less than three litres per passenger per 100 kilometres. Its new-generation engines and superb aerodynamic performance mean that the A380 not only complies with today's noise limits, it is also significantly quieter than any other large aircraft flying today. 

The A350 XWB (Xtra Wide-Body) Family is Airbus' response to Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner and widespread market demand for a series of highly efficient medium-capacity long-range wide-body aircraft. With a range of up to 8,300 nm / 15,400 km, it is available in three basic passenger versions: the A350-800 accommodating 270 passengers, the A350-900 seating 314, and the A350-1000 for 350 passengers in a typical three-class layout.
