Qantas and Airbus finalise contract for 110 A320 aircraft

Qantas and Airbus have finalised a contract for 110 A320 range aircraft, to help with the airline’s fleet-renewal and expansion plans in the coming years.

The firm order for 78 A320neo and 32 A320s is the largest single order in Australian aviation history by aircraft units and follows a commitment signed in August.

The aircraft will be deployed across the Qantas Group on short- to medium-haul domestic and international operations.

Airbus said in a statement that Qantas will make its engine decision at a later date.
