China Aviation Supplies Holding Company Signs General Terms Agreement with Airbus for the Purchase of 70 Airbus Aircraft

Airbus and China have laid the foundation for taking their cooperation into the future as agreements were signed in Paris by Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO, and the Chinese parties. In parallel, China Aviation Supplies Holding Company (CAS) and Airbus have also signed a General Terms Agreement (GTA) for the purchase of 70 Airbus aircraft. Among the total of 70 Airbus aircraft ordered by CAS, there are 43 A320 Family aircraft and 27 A330 aircraft. According to the agreements, Airbus will strengthen its mutually beneficial cooperation with Chinese aviation industry in various fields, which include promoting Tianjin as an Asian Centre for Airbus and upgrading industrial cooperation in both scale and level. Airbus and its Chinese partners Tianjin Free Trade Zone and Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), have agreed to extend the successful Joint Venture to assemble A320 Family aircraft in China (FALC project) for an additional 10 years. The 'phase II' will cover the period from 2016 to 2025, expand deliveries to the whole Asian region and include final assembly of the A320neo Family from 2017 onwards. During Phase II, capabilities of the Tianjin Final Assembly Line will be extended. Airbus and the Chinese parties will jointly invite more major component suppliers to develop industrial projects in Tianjin, in order to support the development of the FALC and the formation of a competitive supply chain. To accommodate the strong growth of the Chinese aviation, which is growing much faster than the world average, and to ensure its sustainability, the future partnership is also designed to focus on alleviating these challenges by launching two other areas of cooperation; supporting the CAAC with the latest Air Traffic Management (ATM) in order to boost the capacity of Chinese airspace, and driving research into regional sustainable jetfuel and other initiatives in order to reduce the Chinese aviation environmental footprint. Airbus and relevant Chinese parties will also work towards demonstrating the interest of setting up a wide-body aircraft completion centre in China, which includes cooperation on wide-body cabin interiors with AVIC.
