Mandala, Air Serbia Cancel 33 A320 Family Aircraft


Airbus' February orders and deliveries report reveals that Mandala Airlines and Air Serbia have cancelled a combined 33 A320 family aircraft.

Mandala Airlines, now known as Tigerair Mandala, placed an order for 25 A320s plus five options in June 2007. None were ever delivered and the order was cancelled last month.

Air Serbia cancelled eight A319s originally ordered by JAT in August 1998. As with the Mandala order, none were delivered. However, this order has already been made up with Etihad Airways' order for 10 A320neos in November 2013. Those aircraft are due to be operated by Air Serbia.

Airbus' report also reveals that Intrepid Aviation Group switched its last A330-200F on order to the passenger variant, bringing the A330-200F backlog down to 13 units. However, three of those orders are in doubt as they were placed by MNG Airlines in 2007 and 2009 but have yet to be delivered. This leaves the A330-200F's theoretical backlog at just 10 aircraft. Compare this to the 44 767Fs, 45 777Fs and 22 747Fs that remain to be delivered according to Aviation Week Intelligence Network's Fleet database.

Lastly, Republic Airways Holdings switched its 20 A319neos and 60 A320neos on order to Frontier Airlines. In the process, two of the A319s were switched to the larger A320 model.
