China's Zhejiang Loong Airlines confirms order of 20 Airbus 320 planes
PARIS (AFP) - China's Zhejiang Loong Airlines has ordered 20 Airbus planes of the A-320 series, firming up a deal made in September, Airbus announced in a statement Sunday.
The carrier that is based in Hangzhou, east China, had been given the green light for the transport of passengers when it signed the Memorandum of Understanding with Airbus at the 15th Aviation Expo China 2013 in Beijing.
Zhejiang Loong Airlines's order concerns 11 A-320ceo and nine A-320neo.
Zhejiang Loong Airlines "made its first commercial flight with a leased A-320, thereby becoming a new Airbus user", the aircraft manufacturer said.
