La prensa canadiense dice que Air Canadá sustituirá sus A319 y A320 más veteranos por C-Series.

Curioso.... Un A319, todavía. Pero... ¿Un A320?
Supongo que AC quiere reducir capacidad, por eso sustituirá algunos A320's por las C-Series. La crisis seguro que también se nota allá y WestJet hace una buena competencia doméstica a AC.

Por cierto, ojito con las C-Series porque podrían ser un pequeño dolor de cabeza tanto para Boeing como para Airbus.

Qantas defers A380 deliveries as economic conditions worsen

Qantas Airways will defer the delivery of Airbus A380 and Boeing 737-800 aircraft, slash capacity, and cut jobs in response to worsening economic conditions, which have forced the Australian airline to cut its profit forecast drastically for the current fiscal year.

The Oneworld alliance carrier says that it will defer the delivery of four A380s by 10-12 months and 12 737-800s for an average of 14 months, and is in talks with Boeing to reduce the delivery of 787-8 aircraft over the near term. In addition, it will ground 10 aircraft and make them available for sale. It is also cutting flying capacity for domestic and international routes by 5% and reducing freight capacity on both as well.

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce says that the carrier, and its low-cost subsidiary Jetstar, will manage wage costs by employing a slew of initiatives such annual leave, long service leave, attrition, redeployment, leave without pay, promoting part-time work and job-sharing. Redundancies, however, will be "unavoidable".



"Unfortunately, responding rapidly to declining economic conditions is going to have a direct impact on our staff. We employ over 34,000 people and we are striving to protect as many of their jobs as possible, but the capacity reductions to protect the long-term viability of the overall Qantas Group mean that up to 1,250 equivalent full-time positions will be affected," he says.

The airline has downgraded its pre-tax profit forecast for the financial year, which ends 30 June, to between A$100 million ($73 million) and A$200 million from A$500 million. To rein in costs, Qantas plans to reduce capital expenditure by at least A$800 million in the next fiscal year and remove 500 management jobs, in addition to 90 management job cuts that it announced in March.

"We are determined to see the Group remain strong and profitable over the longer-term in order to protect the interests of our employees and shareholders. The structural flexibility of our two-brand strategy, Qantas' diversified portfolio of businesses, and prudent financial management have cushioned the impact of the recent deterioration in market conditions. Taking further action on costs and capacity will ensure we can continue to benefit from those strategies," says Joyce.

China Southern to delay A380, 777F and 787 deliveries

China Southern Airlines plans to delay the delivery of its Airbus A380s, Boeing 777 freighters and Boeing 787s.



A report in China's state-run newspaper China Daily quotes the airline's chairman Si Xianmin as saying China Southern has initiated talks with Boeing to delay delivery of its 777 freighters on order, some of which are due to be delivered this year.

China Southern also plans to delay the delivery of its 787s and A380s, says Si, citing unfavourable market conditions.

Yesterday China Southern reported a net loss of 4.82 billion yuan ($703 million) for the 2008 calendar year compared to a 1.83 billion yuan profit in 2007.

It has been trying to reduce its debt by selling older aircraft and is also seeking financial assistance from the Chinese authorities.

China Southern has six 777 freighters on order and in October 2006 it announced that the aircraft would be delivered from November 2008 to July 2010. It also has five A380s on order and in 2005 it announced it had 10 787s on order. Prior to the manufacturing production delays at Airbus and Boeing, the first A380s and 787s were due to be delivered in 2008 in time for the Beijing Olympics.

Cathay to delay delivery of aircraft on order

Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Airways, which is cutting capacity dramatically, is in negotiations with Airbus and Boeing to delay delivery of A330, 777-300ER, 747-8 freighter and 747-400ER freighter aircraft on order.



Cathay says in a statement it is “in negotiations with manufacturers to defer deliveries of new aircraft and looking into whether to renew aircraft leases that expire”.

The Oneworld alliance carrier currently has 20 777-300ERs, ten 747-8Fs, three 747-400ERFs and eight A330-300s on order, according to Flight’s ACAS database.

A Cathay spokeswoman in Hong Kong confirms the airline is in negotiations to delay delivery of all these aircraft types.

The airline has also been trying to sell five Boeing 777-200s in the current fleet.

Cathay’s spokeswoman says it is now parking a total of five 747-400BC freighters whereas previously it was only planning to park three.

Cathay’s sister carrier Dragonair says in a separate statement it is parking its last freighter. Instead it will be relying on bellyhold space on its passenger aircraft - Airbus A320-family and A330s - to provide cargo services.

It also says “leases on two A330s and one A320 will not be renewed when they expire in June and October”.

The move to delay deliveries comes as Cathay and Dragonair cut passenger capacity by 8% and 13% respectively. Cathay has also stated publicly that overall cargo capacity will fall 11%.

Sobre las noticias de redución de actividad y petición de retrasos en la entrega de aviones nuevos ...es lógico, teniendo en cuenta el panorama actual en la economía mundial.

Lo que ya no sería tan lógico serían anulaciones de pedidos hechos recientemente para el largo plazo.

Thumbs up Airbus adjudica a Aresa un macrocontrato de 600 millones de euros

¿Es el A350XB el espaldarazo definitivo a la Industria Aeroespacial Española?

Este tema es uno de los que Andrex quería debatir (corrígeme si me equivoco) en SCC. Y creo que es un tema muy interesante, el A350XB será el Airbus más español de todos (o al menos va por el camino de serlo) y todo ello va ligado a una cosa... los composites. España desde hace unos años es uno de lo líderes mundiales en la fabricación de composites, afortunadamente en este campo tan importante no nos hemos quedados rezagados y a día de hoy se ven sus frutos.

Pongo el artículo y si quereis seguimos debatiendo este tema.

Airbus adjudica a Aresa un macrocontrato de 600 millones de euros

* Supondrá una facturación anual de hasta 50M€ y la creación de 350 empleos


Airbus ha adjudicado a Aries Estructuras Aeroespaciales (Aresa), la fabricación de las partes internas de la sección 19 del nuevo proyecto del constructor europeo A350 XWB. El nuevo contrato supondrá una facturación que podría superar en conjunto los 600 millones de euros en los próximos años, con fecha de inicio de producción en 2010 y hasta 50 millones de euros anuales de negocio, señala un comunicado de la compañía. Cabe recordar que las cajas de ahorros de la Comunidad, están decididas a entrar en este sector estratégico a través de su sociedad Madrigal Participaciones, que se encuentra a la espera de una ampliación de capital para desembarcar en el Grupo Aciturri, que dirige Ginés Clemente.



La ejecución de este nuevo trabajo permitirá la creación de hasta 350 puestos de trabajo, sumando empleo directo e indirecto, en todas las áreas de la compañía, incluyendo ingeniería de desarrollo y fabricación y las de fabricación y montaje. La producción de las partes internas de la sección 19 se realizará en las instalaciones de la compañía en Miranda de Ebro (Burgos), el Parque Tecnológico de Boecillo (Valladolid) y Tres Cantos (Madrid). El montaje final se realizará en las instalaciones de Airbus en Getafe.

La asignación de este nuevo trabajo a Aresa consolida la participación de Aciturri Arenaútica y Aries en el A350, programa en el que la firma castellana y leonesa es además responsable de los trabajos de diseño y fabricación del estabilizador vertical de la aeronave. Al mismo tiempo, el anuncio ratifica la posición de Aciturri y Aries como suministrador de primer nivel de Airbus para sus principales programas (A318/A319/A320/A321, A330, A340, A380 y A400M).

La sección 19 del A350 XWB corresponde a la zona que une el fuselaje del avión con los estabilizadores horizontal y vertical. La adjudicación de las partes internas de esta sección requiere la realización de componentes en diferentes tecnologías en las que las empresas que integran Aciturri Arenaútica son "líderes", como mecanizados de aleaciones ligeras (aleaciones de aluminio y titanio) y nuevas tecnologías de fabricación de materiales compuestos. La estructura de esta sección del fuselaje del A350 XWB combina componentes en los que se aplican diferentes soluciones tecnológicas de bajo peso con el empleo de diversos materiales de última generación, lo que permitirá Aciturri "aumentar su experiencia y liderazgo en el diseño, desarrollo, fabricación y montaje de aeroestructuras".

Este es el primer contrato asignado por Airbus a una empresa de Aciturri Arenaútica, tras la adquisición a finales del pasado año de la mayoría del capital social de Aries Complex, Aresa y Acta Tecnología Aeroespacial, y "confirma el liderazgo de la firma en el desarrollo de la industria aeronáutica castellano y leonesa".

El proyecto presenta una familia de tres versiones que cuentan con un fuselaje extra ancho realizado en tecnologías de fibra de carbono, con ventajas de espacio y confort para el pasajero y con capacidad para transportar hasta 350 personas con una autonomía de más de 15.000 kilómetros en su versión A350XWB-1000.

El nuevo modelo de Airbus competirá con el 787 Dreamliner de Boeing en el mercado de aviones de largo alcance y capacidad media, un segmento que según todas las previsiones cuenta con unas expectativas de venta que superan los 3.700 aviones en los próximos veinte años.

El A350 XWB conjuga lo último en aerodinámica, diseño y tecnologías avanzadas. Entre las características que lo definen destaca la realización del fuselaje en materiales compuestos, fundamentalmente fibra de carbono. Aries Complex cuenta con más de 20 años de experiencia en el empleo de este tipo de tecnología -desde que iniciara su actividad en la planta de Tres Cantos (Madrid)- y con una de las plantas (Aresa) más avanzadas en Europa para la fabricación de componentes con este material y ubicada en el Parque Tecnológico de Boecillo (Valladolid).

Boeing delays 747-8I passenger aircraft deliveries

Boeing has further delayed first delivery of the 747-8 Intercontinental by three to six months to the fourth quarter of 2011.

As the passenger version of the new widebody, the 747-8I now trails first delivery of the freighter version by more than a year. The 748-8F is scheduled to deliver to Cargolux in the third quarter of 2010.

In November, development glitches forced Boeing to delay both aircraft types, with the 747-8I first delivery postponed from late 2010 to the second quarter of 2011.

Jim McNerney, Boeing chief executive, blames the new 747-8I delay on softening demand in the cargo market. Boeing has slowed the pace of 747-8F deliveries, which means the first 747-8I will not be inducted into final assembly until months later.

The new delay announcement comes only two months after a leadership change in the 747-8 programme.

Boeing has appointed Mohammad "Mo" Yahyavi as 747-8 programme manager, replacing Ross Bogue.

The 747-8F remains on track for first flight in the third quarter of this year, a Boeing spokesman says.

For the passenger version, Boeing is still looking for new airline customers. So far, the only commercial customer is Lufthansa Airlines with a launch order for 20 aircraft. Boeing has also sold eight more VIP 747-8Is, but two orders have been cancelled.

Boeing launches new interior and upgrades CFM56 engine for 737NG

Boeing has launched a new interior and upgraded CFM International CFM56 engine for the 737NG family of narrowbody aircraft.

The manufacturer plans to introduce the CFM56-7B Evolution powerplant in conjunction with a new interior to deliver a 1% improvement in overall aircraft efficiency. Boeing will also make minor tweaks to the aerodynamics of the aircraft to contribute to a 1% improvement as well.

Launch customers include FlyDubai, Continental Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, TUI Group, Norwegian, Gol and Lion Air.

CFM will deliver the improvement by reshaping the blades and vanes of the high- and low-pressure turbines to increase airflow through the engine and reducing overall temperature, says director of CFM56 Boeing programs Robyn Brands.

Boeing and CFM will introduce changes to the engine nozzle and plug, and remove approximately 9% of engine airfoils from the high- and low-pressure turbines, to reduce maintenance costs by up to 4%.

Aerodynamic changes to the aircraft include a reshaped anti-collision light, refined wing control surfaces, revised main landing-gear wheel-well fairing and a modulation of the environmental control system inlet and exhaust.

Boeing and CFM are aiming these changes at carriers operating 737s in stages greater than 1,000nm (1,850km).

“The longer you’re in cruise, the more fuel burn improvement you’re going to get,” says 737 chief project engineer John Hamilton.

Video: FlightBlogger interview with John Hamilton



CFM says it will be able to offer the engine improvements to existing CFM56-7B operators through spares and overhauls in the future. The engine maker says it will continue to support the -7B technology insertion package introduced in 2007, as well as the base -7B configuration engine.

The technology changes represent a $100 million investment for CFM. Overall, Boeing hopes to deliver around 2% improved fuel consumption for 737NG customers.

Video: Interior lighting demonstrated



CFM’s first Evolution engine will be ready September 2009 and the company says it is already testing Boeing’s engine nozzle improvements at its Peebles, Ohio facility.

Tests will include 150 hours of block testing beginning in January 2010 that will see the engine run at maximum core speed, maximum fan speed and maximum operating temperature simultaneously – also known as triple redline – for 30-hour intervals.

Following each continuous 30-hour triple redline run, the engine will be spooled down, not shut down, then operated again under the same conditions for a total of four 30-hour triple redline runs.

Brand adds that if an engine were to achieve triple redline in service for even 20 seconds, the US FAA would require the operator to remove and overhaul the engine, emphasizing the brutal testing to which the new Evolution engine will be subjected.

CFM will flight test the Evolution on General Electric's venerable Boeing 747-100 in February of 2010, ahead of a joint US FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency certification in July 2010. Once certified, the Evolution engine will be branded as the CFM56-7BE.

Boeing will utilise a Continental 737-800 to flight test the changes in October 2010 ahead of certification in the second quarter of 2011, followed by entry into service in mid-2011 – when the aerodynamic enhancements are also scheduled for introduction. The interior will enter service in the fourth quarter of 2010.

FlyDubai will be the launch customer for the 737 ‘Sky Interior’ which features new colour-LED lighting, larger 777/787-style pivot bins, new sculpted sidewalls, revised window design, a flight attendant touch-screen panel, and changes to the individual passenger reading-light panel.

Boeing also hopes to deliver a 2-4dB reduction in cabin noise. The interior improvements mark the most significant change to the type’s cabin since its introduction with Southwest Airlines in 1998.

The weight-neutral interior will be a priced option for existing 737 customers and be a mandatory priced ‘option’ for new customers. Boeing declines to discuss the adjustment in price of the new features.

While technically possible to retrofit current 737NGs, Boeing says this is “not feasible” because the cost would be prohibitively high.
