As usual, Airbus has updated the list prices of its aircraft effective from 1st of January 2015.
Airbus has increased the average list prices of its aircraft by 3.27% across the product line. Last year the price increase was 2,6%.
The 3.27% price increase has been calculated according to Airbus’ standard escalation formula over the January 2014 to January 2015 period, and enables Airbus to continue to enhance its profitability.
A350-900 new price 2015: 304,8 million $ (was 295,2 million $)
A350-1000 new price 2015: 351,9 million $ (was 340,7 million $)
Airbus has cancelled the development of the A350-800 but includes the new price: 269,5 million $ (was 260,9 million $)
“Our new 2015 pricing reaffirms the value of Airbus’ modern, comprehensive and fuel-efficient aircraft family,” said John Leahy, Airbus chief operating officer, customers.
Price, while important, is only part of the equation, given that the airlines will get substantial discounts off the list price. Timing may prove to be the deciding factor in many negotiations.
