Airbus puts its prices up

AIRBUS has increased the list price of all its aircraft by an average of 5.8% although the numbers are somewhat hypothetical as every leasing company, bank and actual airline will negotiate a deal with the manufacturer depending on the kit required and delivery date.  Airbus says that the price increase is the first since January 2008, and applies for all new aircraft ordered from the beginning of January 2010.  Airbus notes that even with record aircraft deliveries and impressive orders in recent years, the continuing strength of the €uro against the US Dollar and the ongoing financial challenges ahead have forced the company to take action.  An Airbus A318 to a fairly standard specification is priced at US$62.5m and an A380 at $346.3.  Place an order now for a A350-800 XWB and its yours for US$225.2m.  www.airbus.com
