Airbus Aircraft List Prices For 2014

January 13, 2014 - Airbus has increased the average list prices of its aircraft by 2.6 per cent across the product line. The new pricing is effective from January 1st 2014.

The 2.6 per cent price increase has been calculated according to Airbus’ standard escalation formula over the January 2013 to January 2014 period. 

“Our new 2014 pricing reaffirms the unbeatable value of Airbus’ modern, fuel-efficient aircraft family,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer, Customers.

“We see continuing strong demand in all aircraft size categories as our reliable, efficient product line enables customers to grow their businesses profitably as well as pleasing passengers who will always favor the most comfortable cabin.”

Airbus Aircraft: 2014 Average List Prices (Million USD)

A318   - $71.9 - The Airbus A318 is the smallest member of the Airbus A320 family of short- to medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger jet airliners

A319  - $85.8 - The A319 is a shortened, minimum-change version of the A320. Also known as the A320M-7, it is 12 ft 3 in shorter than the A320 four frames fore of the wing and three frames aft of the wing were removed. This allows the number of emergency exits to be reduced to six. With virtually the same fuel capacity as the A320-200, and fewer passengers, the range with 124 passengers in a two-class configuration extends to 3,590 nmi, or 3,700 nmi with the "Sharklets"

A320 - $93.9 - The Airbus A320 family consists of short- to medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger jet airliners. The A320s are also named A320ceo (current engine option) after the introduction of the A320neo. The aircraft family can accommodate up to 220 passengers and has a range of 1,700 to 6,500 nmi depending on model.


A321 - $110.1 - The Airbus A321 is a stretched first derivative of the standard A320. A321's major change is the stretched fuselage, which is lengthened by 22 ft 9 in the A321 is the largest of the A320 family.

A319neo - $94.4 - Airbus offers three advanced variants of the A320 family with the "New Engine Option" the A319, A320 and A321.

A320neo - $102.8 -The Airbus A320neo letters "neo" stand for "New Engine Option". Modernization program also included such improvements as: Aerodynamic refinements, large curved winglets (Sharklets), weight savings, a new cabin with larger luggage spaces, and an improved air purification system. These improvements in combination are predicted to result in 15% less fuel consumption, 8% lower operating costs, less noise production, and a reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions by at least 10% compared to the A320 series, as well as an increase in range of approximately 500 nautical miles.

A321neo - $120.5 - The A321neo can accommodate up to 236 seats. In conjunction with the additional over-wing exit door, a second new option is available whereby the forward exit is de-activated. This creates a seamless, undivided forward cabin allowing additional seats and even more flexibility in multi-class seat arrangements. This option will be of particular use in longer range markets where high comfort standards are needed in Premium class.

A330-200 - $221.7 - The Airbus A330 is a wide-body twin-engine jet airliner, the A330-300, the first variant. Responding to dwindling sales, Airbus followed up with the slightly shorter A330-200 variant which has proven more popular. Subsequently developed A330 variants include a dedicated freighter, the A330-200F, and a military tanker, the A330 MRTT.

330-200 Freighter - $224.8 - The A330-200F mid-sized freighter version is tailored for long-haul routes and regional operations to feed cargo into hub airports. The A330-200F’s large main-deck cargo door allows the aircraft to accept all commonly-used pallets and containers, enabling the transport of a full range of cargo – from high-value consumer goods to express packages and perishables.

A330-300 - $245.6 - The Airbus A330 is a wide-body twin-engine jet airliner. The A330-300, the first variant, the A330-300 is based on a stretched A300 fuselage 208 ft 11 in long but with new wings, stabilizers and fly-by-wire systems. The 300 carries 295 passengers in a three-class cabin layout, 335 in two-class, or up to 440 in an all-economy layout. It has a range of 5,700 nmi. It has a large cargo capacity, comparable to that of early Boeing 747s. It is powered by the choice of two General Electric CF6-80E, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, all of which are ETOPS-180 rated.

A350-800 - $260.9 - The A350-800 will seat 270 passengers in a 3-class with a 9-abreast layout. It will have a range of 8,300 nmi. It is designed to compete with the Boeing 787-9 and to directly replace the Airbus A330-200. A350-800 allows for a higher maximum takeoff weight. The -800's fuselage is 10 frames shorter (six forward and four aft) than the -900 aircraft. The baseline -800 will be offered with an MTOW of 248 t (550,000 lb), MLW of 190 t (420,000 lb), MZFW of 178 t (390,000 lb), and 330 kN (74,000 lbf) thrust engines. An optional 11-ton (24,000 lb) increase in MTOW, to 259 t (570,000 lb) with a corresponding increase of MZFW to 181 t (400,000 lb), MLW to 193 t (430,000 lb), and a higher thrust 370 kN (83,000 lbf) engine.

A350-900 - $295.2 - The A350-900 is the first A350 model and seats 314 passengers in a 3-class cabin 9-abreast layout. It has a standard design range target of 8,100 nmi. The -900 is designed to compete with the Boeing 777-200ER and replace the Airbus A340-300.

A350-1000 - $340.7 - The A350-1000 has an 11-frame stretch over the -900.  It is the largest variant of the A350 family and will seat 350 passengers in a 3-class cabin 9-abreast layout. It has a range of 8,400 nmi. It is designed to compete with the Boeing 777-300ER and replace the Airbus A340-600.

A380 - $414.4 - The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner. It is the world's largest passenger airliner. The A380's upper deck extends along the entire length of the fuselage, with a width equivalent to a wide-body aircraft. This gives the A380-800's cabin 5,145.1 sq ft of floor space, which is 40% more than the next-largest airliner, the Boeing 747-8 and provides seating for 525 people in a typical three-class configuration or up to 853 people in an all-economy class configuration. The A380-800 has a design range of 8,500 nmi; 9,800 mil, with a cruising speed of Mach 0.85, about 560 mph at cruising altitude.
