In case you wonder how much those Airbus aircraft cost, here’s the list price announced today by the European manufacturer.
By the way, nobody buys airplanes at the list price.
Often, the selling price will be a lot lower.
The company says it has increased the average list price by 2.6 per cent.
The new price ranges from US$72 million for the A318, the smallest member of the A320 family, to US$414 million for the A380 superjumbo, the world’s largest passenger aircraft.
It was a highly successful year for Airbus — the company won 1,619 gross orders in 2013 and delivered a record 626 aircraft to 93 customers.
In all, Airbus has sold nearly 14,000 aircraft to more than 360 customers, delivering 8,000 airplanes.
