Qantas Airways Limited plans to buy more than 100 passenger planes for next year. There will be all kinds of small and big aircraft. Australia’s state airline will order jets suitable for regional routes. In addition, the company plans to purchase large-sized aircraft suitable for the world’s longest commercial flight from Sydney to London.
At the annual meeting of the International Air
Transport Association in Boston, he said Qantas was going to renew such a large fleet once in a generation. This is a very effective decision for the future.
The news of this purchase order of Qantas is very hopeful news for the aircraft manufacturers. Corona disrupted air travel, reducing demand for airlines. Manufacturers have had to cut back on aircraft production, and many aircraft have been cut off. Nowadays, the travel system is improving again all over the world. According to Joyce, Qantas will order the jets in mid-2022 and supply between 2023 and 2024.
The airline is considering models such as the Boeing 737 Max from the US aircraft manufacturer, the A320 Neo Family from the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus, the A220 and the E-Jet E2 family from the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer.
The new aircraft will be fuel efficient and reduce
Carbon dioxide emissions by 15 percent, Kantas said. It will focus on the use of sustainable energy to meet its goal of reducing carbon emissions to zero by 2050. This will work with the airlines.
In addition to reviving the aviation sector in the wake of the Corona epidemic, Qantas plans to expand its business to more profitable routes in the long run. Last year, the airline suspended plans to buy A350 jets from 12 Airbuses suitable for flights from Sydney to London and from Sydney to New York.
But according to Joyce, the company’s chief executive
, the company is once again ordering the largest passenger aircraft. He hopes that Qantas will place an order in early 2022. However, the purchase order may have been issued at that time or earlier. He also said that the flight to Rapalla could start in 2024 or 2025.
Qantas has ordered 130 Airbus A320 Neo Family Jets. The first aircraft will be delivered in the second half of 2022 and the rest will be available later this decade, Qantas said.
However, the airline has not been able to resume international flights since the epidemic. The company also started preparations to launch the flight next November. However, the Australian government has recently stated that international flights will not be launched before 2022. The wait for Qantas to launch international flights has grown even more.
