Dubai Air Show Orders II

New orders at the Dubai Air Show:

1. DAE Capital

The Dubai based leasing company ordered 85 Boeing aircrafts; 75 B737 NGs, 10 B777-300s and 5 747-8F frighters. According to gossips there is a chance DAE Capital will extend its order to 15 additional B787s. DAE also ordered 70 A320s and 30 A350XWBs.


Low Cost Aircraft Leasing, a Dubai based leasing company increased the number of a previous order by 6 B787s, thus instead of the original 15, they will buy 21.

3. Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Alsaud

Signature at Dubai Air Show

Prince Alwaleed is the first private person who confirmed the order of an A380 for private purposes. The A380 Flying Palace will probably be the most luxurious private jet.

4. Air Arabia

Air Arabia ordered 34 Airbus A320s and took options on 15 more. Air Arabia is the first low cost airline in the Middle-East and its base is the United Arab Emirates.

    Do you know if this is the first private A380 ever (so now we know who ordered it about a year ago), or is it a totally new order?

    I’m quoting another magazine:
    “When it was widely reported early in 2007 that an unnamed customer had signed a letter of intent for an A380 Flying Palace, it was thought to have been the Emir of Dubai. Now it appears likely that the customer was Prince Alwaleed.”

    So it’s probably that order from a year ago.
