Airbus to Slow Down Airbus A320neo Production



According to Aviation Week Network, Airbus will slow down the production rate of the A320neo until July as Pratt & Whitney works on a fix to solve the problems with the PW1100G engine.


The aircraft manufacturer entered 2016 producing eight A320neos per month. But it has cut the type’s production in half to four aircraft per month, and plans for that rate to remain steady until June, the sources told Aviation Daily.


Airbus plans to increase A320neo production to 10 aircraft in July, 16 in October, 20 in December and 26 in March 2017, the sources said. That compares to Airbus’ target of producing 50 A320s per month by early 2017. The number includes both neo and ceo models. Ultimately, Airbus expects A320neo output to reach 60 aircraft by mid-2019, about 42 months after first delivery.


Airbus declined to comment on the new figures, and also did not confirm that the company has decided to slow production. A spokesman said the company expects the engine issues to be “over” by midyear, and pointed out A320neo deliveries were always going to be higher towards the end of 2016.


The number of A320neos without engines parked outside Airbus’ Toulouse and Hamburg factories is increasing. Industry sources believe the figure is close to 30 aircraft, and it could be significantly higher soon if airlines continue to forego deliveries.


Pratt & Whitney is working on two issues: a hardware change to avoid slight engine shaft bending under certain temperature conditions, which currently requires extended startup times; and software updates that eliminate false warnings.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
