“We are grateful to CAS, one of our longest standing customers, for its continued confidence in Airbus and in the versatile A330 Family as well as the best-selling A320 Family, with these 30 A330 options now firmed up, CAS’ total number of orders for the popular Airbus widebody is this year 75 aircraft.

Strong demand in China for the A330 has been the key driver behind Airbus’ decision to set up an A330 assembly plant Tianjin, China next to the A320 Family final assembly line and delivery centre in Tianjin, which has assembled and delivered more than 240 Airbus single aisle aircraft

At present Chinese airlines operate over 1,200 Airbus aircraft.
