Airbus SAS delivered two new A320 family aircraft to Chinese airlines recently.

Juneyao Airlines, a Shanghai-based privately-owned carrier, has taken delivery of its first purchased A320 during a delivery ceremony in Toulouse, France, adding to its currently leased 10 leased Airbus aircraft fleet – two A319s and eight A320s – with 10 more A320s, via operating lease and purchase, due to join the fleet by the end of 2012.

The aircraft, the first of six ordered in June 2007, is powered by CFM56 engines and will accommodate 158 passengers in a two-class configuration, including eight first class seats.


Shanghai Airlines has taken delivery of its first Airbus aircraft, an A321, the first of 10 A321s ordered by the Shanghai-based carrier in 2006 and 2007.

Powered by IAE V2533-A5 engines, the carrier’s first A321 is fitted in an all-new, comfortable two-class configuration with 178 seats (166 seats in Economy, 12 in Business Class).
