Airbus reaches deal to restructure AirAsia jet order

Economy A- A A+
Airbus has agreed to cut prices or reschedule delivery for hundreds of jets ordered by Malaysia’s AirAsia to salvage a contract worth tens of billions of dollars with its largest Asian customer, industry sources said on Friday.
 
The restructuring deal resets relations between two of the industry’s closest partners, torn apart by the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis, and lifts uncertainty over the fate of up to 400 A320-family single-aisle jets yet to be delivered. Airbus declined comment, while AirAsia did not immediately reply to a request for comment. The AirAsia deal does not involve cancelling jets on order but includes a new delivery schedule and price cuts or other improvements in terms, the sources said.
 
AirAsia said last year it would stop taking deliveries of all Airbus jets and review remaining orders.
 
Industry sources said it had also stopped sending progress payments to Airbus, prompting the planemaker to suspend plans to produce jets on order pending the new restructuring deal.
