Bombardier has received certification of its CS100 C-Series model from Transport of Canada, allowing the manufacturer to commence commercial deliveries of the aircraft.
Airbus has delayed deliveries of the first A320 NEO aircraft intended for IndiGo due to undisclosed "industrial reasons". IndiGo was scheduled to be the third airline to take delivery of the re-engined aircraft.
IAG has firmed up options for another 15 A320 NEO aircraft, in addition to the 52 firm orders already in place for A320 NEO family aircraft. The existing orders are expected to be divided between IAG subsidiaries Vueling and British Airways. An engine selection has not been announced for the aircraft.
Turkish Airlines has selected Pratt & Whitney's PW1100G Geared TurboFan (TM) to power the 72 A321 NEO aircraft that it currently has on order. Turkish Airlines also has options on a further 20 aircraft.
Boeing has won an order from China Southern Airlines for 30 737NG and 50 737 MAX aircraft. As part of the deal, Boeing has agreed to buy-back older versions of the 737 from China Southern. Boeing also announced that China's Xiamen Airlines was the customer in a previously announced order for 30 737 MAX aircraft.
Due to flight test delays, delivery of the first Mitsubishi Regional Jet to Al Nippon Airways (ANA) will likely be delayed until the latter half of 2018 - a delay of over a year.
