The new A350 agreement also brings to 17 the gross number of long-haul twinjets requested from Airbus so far this year, together with an A330-300 SAS and a single A330-200 for the military tanker program.

Airbus long distance programs, including the A380, slipped in positive order numbers, as a result, with a net total of three aircraft during the first five months of this year.

Lufthansa represented the only single aisle orders during May, after agreeing to take six A320neos and three A320s.

These took the net total of orders from the A320 family to 108 this year. Airbus has also delivered 223 aircraft in general, 8% less than the 242 reached in the same stage last year.
