China Aviation Supplies Holding (CAS) has signed an agreement for 60 Airbus aircraft. The general terms agreement (GTA) includes 42 A320 family aircraft and 18 A330s. The deal is part of a number of agreements made by China and France, all of which were signed yesterday in China. “The A320’s high reliability and low operational cost has made it very popular with Chinese airlines. As congestion puts pressure on airports in large cities in China, the A330 is an excellent solution as larger aircraft can transport more passengers with less flights. The comfort of the A330’s spacious cabin is also appealing to passengers. These eco-efficient Airbus aircraft will contribute to the growth and success of China’s aviation sector,” said Fabrice Brégier, president and CEO of Airbus.
