AirAsia X has placed a firm order with Airbus for 55 A330neo aircraft.

The order reaffirms AirAsia Xs position as the biggest A330 airline customer worldwide, having now ordered a total of 91 aircraft.

The order firms up a Memorandum of Understanding or 50 A330neo signed during the Farnborough Air Show in July 2014, plus an additional five aircraft.

Deliveries of the newly-ordered aircraft are expected to begin in 2018.

This latest deal with Airbus will enable AirAsia X to consolidate its growth rate in 2015-2017 before ramping up deliveries with the new A330neo models with the latest Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engine option series from 2018 onwards, said Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Co-Founder and Director of AirAsia X. The A330 has proven itself to be exactly the right aircraft for our business model as part of our continuous efforts to drive cost down. With the new fuel efficiency its engine will allow us to optimize utilization whilst flying to new long range destinations.

Building on the proven economics, versatility and reliability of the A330ceo, the A330neo will incorporate latest generation Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, aerodynamic enhancements and new cabin features. These advances will reduce fuel consumption and increase the non-stop flying range.
