ALC signs for 50 Airbus A220-300, 23 A321neo, and 27 A321XLR

Paris, France - Airbus made a stunning start at the Paris Air Show. The order announcements for the planes of the European aircraft manufacturer came one after another.

The American leasing company ALC has signed a letter of intent with Airbus for 50 A220-300, 23 A321neo, and 27 A321XLR.

ALC is, therefore, one of the launch customers for the Airbus's new extra-long-range program A321XLR. The program was officially announced by the manufacturer this morning at the opening of Paris Air Show as it was expected.

The order for the A220s is another positive progress for the Airbus's 100-150 seat jet program. The manufacturer took over the majority stake of the Bombardier's CSeries program last year in July and re-branded it as A220.

Airbus has been working to transform it into a profit maker for the company since then. It is the smallest aircraft in the Airbus family and has so far accumulated orders for 536 copies from customers around the world.
