AIRCRAFT FOR AIR TANZANIA

The government of Tanzania has ordered a single Boeing 787 Dreamliner and two CS300 jets and a Q400 turboprop from Bombardier. The Bombardier contracts were signed by the Tanzanian Government Flight Agency and announced in December. Worth $200 million at list prices, the aircraft will be leased to Air Tanzania. The Q400 will be in a single class 76 seat configuration, the same as the two Q400s received in late September 2016, while the CS300 will be in two-class layout. The 787-8 order, worth $224.6 million at list prices, was also revealed in December. It will be delivered in June 2017.

PERCENT CUT IN 777 PRODUCTION

Boeing will have cut production of the 777 by 40% by the third quarter of 2017. Up to the end of 2016 the company built 8.3 777s every month, but that rate will reduce to seven in early 2017 and it will fall again, to five aircraft per month, by August. The slowdown reflects a sharp fall in 777 orders. There were only 17 net orders in 2016, down from 58 in 2015 and 238 in 2014. As of December 2016, the 777 family backlog stood at 442 aircraft overall. However, Boeing’s orders and deliveries data shows that of that number, there are only 136 current generation Triple Sevens in the backlog.

A330s FOR NEW LCC

BA, Iberia, Aer Lingus and Vueling parent company IAG is to set up a new low-cost longhaul operation at Barcelona in June 2017 using two A330s. IAG boss Willie Walsh told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that it was possible a new brand may be created for the project, although that is yet to be confirmed. Likely destinations are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Buenos Aires, Havana and Tokyo.
