Airbus says AirAsiaX places firm order for 55 A330neo

[PARIS] AirAsiaX boosted its purchase of Airbus A330neo passenger jets as it placed a firm order for 55 of the revamped wide-body jets, the planemaker said on Monday.

AirAsia's long-haul arm placed a provisional order for 50 of the aircraft at the Farnborough in July.

These orders have now been confirmed along with 5 more of the same model, Airbus said in a statement.

The expanded order is worth US$15 billion at list prices.

The plane purchase automatically means an order for Trent 7000 engines from Britain's Rolls-Royce.
