TOULOUSE, France -- Airbus recorded orders for eight aircraft during the month of July. An undisclosed customers ordered eight A350-900s.

In the first seven months of 2018, Airbus garnered 269 orders. The company delivered 380 aircraft.

As of July 31, 2018, the order backlog for Airbus totaled 7,464. Unfilled orders broken down by aircraft type were as follows: 363 for the A220, 19 for the A319ceo, 56 for the A319neo, 121 for the A320ceo, 3,780 for the A320neo, 118 for the A321ceo, 1,901 for the A321neo, 302 for the A330, 702 for the A350, and 102 for the A380.

The overall backlog at the end of July 2018 represents an increase compared to the backlog at the end of June 2018, which had totaled 7,168. This increase is due to the first-time inclusion of the A220 (formerly the Bombardier CSeries) into Airbus' official results.

ANKARA -- In May 2018, Corendon Airlines added a new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to its fleet as first in Turkey and positioned itself in the middle of attention in the civil aviation industry. Corendon Airlines has now signed a new agreement for the delivery of three more aircraft of this quiet and environment friendly model. Two aircraft, to be produced in the Boeing factory in Seattle, will be delivered in 2019 and the third aircraft will follow in 2020.

As first in Turkey, Corendon Airlines recently added a new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to its fleet and has now signed a new contract for delivery of another three aircraft of this model.

Yildiray Karaer, Corendon Airlines CEO and co-founder, reminded that the first commercial flight of the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft was made on May 19 from Antalya to Eindhoven and he gave some information about the new agreement. Karaer remarked that Corendon Airlines will continue to expand and rejuvenate its fleet and to add more aircraft of the MAX 8 series to their fleet in line with efficiency and environment strategy.

"We are pleased that we were able to expand our fleet with a 737 MAX 8 aircraft, equipped by Boeing in a very special way," Karaer said. "Due to the fact that Boeing has succeeded to achieve economic fuel consumption, the operational efficiency of airlines has increased considerably. At the same time the quiet engine and the spacious cabin design will result in better flight experience and higher satisfaction of passengers. Two of the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft will be delivered in May and June 2019 and the third one will join our fleet in May 2020 and our passengers will experience even more ease and flight comfort." The aircraft’s power comes from CFM International LEAP-1B engines that specially produced for the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. The new model contributes to reduce carbon emission by fuel-saving of 15%. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 has an operating range of 3.550 miles (6.570 km) and on average it can fly further than the Boeing 737 Next Generation series. The Boeing 737 MAX series features a new aerodynamic design and compared to competitors, it is eco-friendlier and quieter by 40% when compared to today’s single-aisle aircrafts.

The castings will be produced at Magellan’s facilities in Haley, Ontario, Canada and Glendale, Arizona, USA. The agreement is expected to generate approximately CDN $81 million in revenue for Magellan through 2023.

Haydn Martin, Magellan’s Vice President, Business Development, Marketing and Contracts said, "This new agreement will provide Pratt & Whitney with enhanced security of supply with Magellan internally dual sourcing these castings between two manufacturing facilities in Canada and the USA, significantly de-risking the supply chain. Magellan will utilize the latest in advanced sand casting technologies, specifically 3D sand printing and automated pouring to produce these components." Magellan is a world leader in the development and industrialization of advanced technologies in the aerospace sand casting industry.

"Pratt & Whitney looks forward to continued growth with Magellan Aerospace in signing this agreement," said Brandon Barrett, strategic sourcing manager at Pratt & Whitney.
